The owner bought this boat in 2010

General condition and any additional information

Because of the winged keel, she doesnt work really well to weather; although, she is adequately seaworthy. Off the wind, she shines and sails much higher than her phrf ratings. Ive had her in the tens numerous times on the Bay, and once offshore, I put her up to 12.1. She has lots of room--much more than comparable 27 footers. Ive rigged her for single-handing, and Ive taken her up and down the local coast to swing on the hook and watch elk feed near the water in Tomales Bay or inland to jump into the warm fresh water of the Delta. When we remodeled our house, we lived on her for 6 weeks... But at 73 years old, I dont move like I used to, and my wife and I need a more stable platform. We are buying a bigger boat.
