Saline is a deep draft, tall rig racer/cruiser sloop that really is quite fast.  Within club racing she almost always wins something in her PHRF division.  She’s an affordable, comfortable sloop with years of enjoyment left in her.  There were two interior configurations offered by Capital Yachts, a California company.  Saline has the aft cabin model with a large, privately enclosed quarter berth cabin, main salon with port and starboard settee berths and a double forward cabin with twin berths which all sleep a total of 5. Storage beneath berths. The teak bulkhead mounted table is center mounted. There are lush teak appointments throughout w/teak & holly sole. Sliding doors with cane inserts enclose cabinetry shelves. The head is completely private with easy to clean fiberglass surfaces and is located aft in the main salon to port.  The galley stove (starboard) and sink & ice box (port) are located between the main salon and the head and aft cabin.  She has a nice looking shear, with flush deck. The keel is fin made of lead and the rudder is hung inboard the transom – spade style.  She has a single spreader deck-stepped Isomat spar, self-reefing boom and rigid vang.  The boat has mid-boom mainsail sheeting with traveler atop the companionway.  Shrouds are carried inboard better for walking forward and for a tighter sheeting angle for sailing to weather. There are two deck hatches and two opening ports all with screens. This boat is pretty complete, in good condition for her age and had had a fair amount of upgrades.  Affordable for sure and large enough for cruising most anywhere.  She is located now on Lake Superior and slips are readily available in that area for boats this size.  Owner is selling because of bad back and cannot sail anymore.
