    Cool, Thanks for the pictures......interesting boat, amazing what all they got into it....if true?

    She's not exactly beautiful from the stern......and getting to the foredeck may be a bit interesting at times. But at least the cockpit will be safe and cozy in all conditions. I would guess no reefing just hoist and drop sails as required.

    mag test from the 70's

    Tad, you could say Butt Ugly (or ugly Butt) but I guess functionality overtakes aesthetics at times :rolleyes:

    here is a test from the time, and it seems that 1 litre an hour in combined sail mode was the norm to keep to hull speed.

    The designer was a lateral thinker.....
