Courtland Steck designed this to be a family cruiser that can be easily trailered, launched, retrieved and rigged easily. She has a traditional interior seen in boats of this size with a double forepeak berth and two settee berths. Her rig is fractional so that the headsail is smaller for easier sail handling and tacking while the mainsail is larger and provides lots of horse power. The mast is deck stepped with swept back spreaders. The boom is sufficiently high so she is not a head knocker. The hull has a shoal draft keel with centerboard which is really the most ideal configuration. The leaded shoal keel provides the stability, the swing keel provides the windward performance and she is self-righting despite the position of the keel. The keel is also encapsulated in fiberglass, so maintenance is minimal. This is a two owner boat sailed on Leech Lake & Lake Superior.
