Description:
Centerboard model. Still produced by Cape Cod Shipbuilding in Wareham, MA, so parts and accessories are readily available. Stable and fun family daysailer for up to five adults, but sails easily with two due to simple set-up and ease of operation, and I often single-hand her. Boat continues to be raced on the east coast. This ruggedly built, classic fractional-rigged sailboat fits on its trailer in my standard-size garage. Boat is ready to sail. I routinely pull this boat on its trailer at highway speeds with the family car without difficulty; we had the boat out last weekend and as usual it performed very nicely. I have really loved her but my wife and I have to step up to a bigger boat. Call or text Steve at (913) 963-1793.

Equipment:
Solid fiberglass deck and hull, mahogany comings, mahogany floor boards and matching gear box, high quality Harken and Schaefer deck hardware. Flotation chambers tested airtight in 2020. Four sails all in good repair without rips or repairs in their original sail bags include older but functional main and working jib, newer genoa and hardly used spinnaker. Main sail has both slab reefing and roller-boom reefing. Mast, boom, standing and running rigging all in good repair. Two internal halyards. Boom vang. New electric motor with central cut-off switch and marine battery with charging system wired to charge without removing the battery from the boat. Sheer-legs system for mounting the mast anywhere without assistance. Swim ladder. Canvas Sunbrella cockpit cover used once. Restored vintage break-back trailer made by the Gator corporation in the 1960s launches and retrieves without submerging the wheel hubs, has new LED lights, and wheel bearings and tires (including spare) were all replaced in 2020.
