|Underwater profile||Long keel|
On deck measurement is 42 Feet. Length overall is 49 feet including boomkin and bowsprit. Originally built as a gaff-rigged schooner for the Forbes family. Built of mahogany carvel planks in 1965, in 2002 she was stripped of paint, completely refastened with bronze fasteners under the waterline and the entire hull was recalked by Dave Thompson of Port Townsend. The decks and house are fiberglass covered marine plywood. Her gaff rig and wood spars were replaced with aluminum masts and the bowsprit shortened by six feet to compensate. Today her paint is fresh and everywhere you look is beautifully finished.

Entering the pilothouse doors there are seats directly to port and starboard with the autopilot mounted to starboard. There is no wheel in the pilothouse -- it is mounted in the cockpit. You fairly quickly step down into the galley and aft cabin. A pilot berth to port mirrored with storage to starboard. The galley is starboard with a large nav station to port. A deck height passway leads you forward into a good sized salon with settes and table to port and a Dickenson Antarctic heater and tall hot water tank to starboard. There is another settee to starboard with the forward cabin accessed slightly to starboard of center. The head is to port with the passway into the forward cabin converting to a shower when needed with grated floor. The good size master has a V-style berth. The entire interor is painted and varnished and in very nice condition.
All fabrics and foam were new in 2010.
