The Monty 17 was designed by Lyle Hess, who had the reputation of building sturdy small boats capable of offshore use and Bird Girl is no exception.  Montgomery 17s have been sailed from California to Hawai’i, and on many other open bodies of water.  The lap strake-like fiberglass hull gives the boat construction more rigidity than normal hulls and the boat tracks better than most. Her physical appeal is of timeless tradition which is appreciated for years to come. She has a shoal draft lead keel with weighted centerboard raises with the winch just inside the cabin that can be reached from the companionway.  The pennant that attaches to the keel is buried inside the shoal keel trunk, so is not exposed to pick up weeds. The cockpit is quite large with a large sail locker.  Down below there is sitting headroom and a spot for a head beneath one side of the double forepeak berth.  Offered in a 4-berth configuration or a 3-berth with galley unit, Bird Girl has the 4-berths. A forward hatch opens for ventilation.  The hull to deck joint on a Monty 17 is so strong that you can pick up the entire weight of the boat attaching to the three mooring cleats.
