This boat has many unusual and practical features. Typical of these are the fact that the section of floor between the two forward berths can be relocated to form the infill for conversion to a double; the fact that the Lavac can easily be adapted to enable evacuation of any residual water after withdrawing the log paddle transducer; the way in which the vessel's battery box (new batteries 2000) stows under the cockpit sole; the built-in wind-down beaching legs, enabling her to sit upright on a drying mooring; the twin rudders that incorporate a built-in boarding ladder; the elastic damper on the plate lanyard that obviates the plate crashing down if the lanyard is loosed; the sliding, removable glazed hard-top over the companionway; and her built-in foam buoyancy. Her outboard, which has 13-amp charging coils, is installed in a well and tilts up through an opening in the bottom of the transom to allow easy access to the propeller. This is a boat which incorporates a whole host of good ideas, the practicality of which has been thought through and honed over an extended period. She was fully epoxy-coated inside and out prior to painting and varnishing and her rubbing strakes and handrails have been treated with Deks Olje each year. Building survey and insurance survey reports are available if required.

When we were asked to see this boat, which is of the owner's own design and building, we were quite unprepared for the quality and practicality she represents. She is in outstanding condition - even her bilges are spotless - and is a boat that is a pleasure to have on the list.
