    Pretty cool little boat I stumbled upon while browsing the DuckWorks page as I do from time to time. Just curious how those in "the know" feel she would sail and her level of seaworthiness. Being a junk rig I already know she won't point well into the wind, I am more concerned about how much she heels over with the extra weight aloft and handling waves. Specs are as follows:
