“From my point of view, the most significant feature is the end-plate rudder which allows the blade to be as shallow as it is without loss of effectiveness. The tiller is brought amidships without the usual ugly and unsatisfactory linkages. This is well proven in use, by no means experimental. A related feature is enough salient keel to allow her to sail on all points in 12″ of water with the board completely up. The wide-on-deck, soft-bilged shape somewhat obviates both fixed ballast and very active live ballast.

“The folding seats leave close to five feet of sleeping flat. The wide beam is to get some deck outboard of the coaming. It won’t make her much harder to plank, or stop her much in a chop, since the ends are sharp. The diagonals are a fair sweep.

“This strikes me as having the makings of an extremely pretty and otherwise nice boat.”
