If you are looking for a beautiful, large and powerful daysailer, this could be it. Compared to other classic daysailers of similar type, this  29‘ hull has full ends and U-shaped sections, in what used to be called a “skimming dish” type of shape, and she has a very abbreviated underwater profile. She should be very fast in light air and smooth water, and downwind in all conditions. Upwind in a breeze she’ll be wet, and exciting. While the original design had a centerboard, this version has a deep keel for more power upwind and in heavier air, and to clear the interior of the centerboard trunk.
