    I had to completely reshape both boards and the rudder which I made a kick up.The rudder both sides different from one another and the boards had almost no camber and were different each side.??!! Dont know how the previous owners managed to sail her ?
    She sails to windward very well and will steer herself for short times.Very well balanced with genoa and main but does not go to windward with main sail alone.

    The interior is simple with head (bucket) forward and single that folds to double mid section.Simple galley ,no sink , and nav station and hanging locker starboard.
    The floats have too many hatches and leak ,I am thinking about covering over some to have just one each side and good solar powered ventilation pump to circulate the air.I have one working in the port float and works well.

    I am sailing boomless but still needs refining.The wishbone boom was just too heavy.

    Here is Bernards email address ,he will be very happy they have survived all this time.
