These are Junk rigged sails with full battens. This type of rig has proven to provide a great variety of adjustment to varying wind conditions. Ease of handling and great efficiency for long distance cruising are the hallmarks of the junk rig. It should be noted that an advantage of this type of Schooner junk rig provides a much lower center of effort from the combined sail area and is adjustable to keep that center of effort low to add to the overall stability when sailing in heavy weather conditions.
All sails are in need of minor maintenance. The last survey notes that sails to be serviceable but that much of the running rigging needs attention.

The main saloon features a settee to port with storage above and below. To starboard is a very large dining area with a round table with comfortable curved seating. Aft and to starboard is the L-shaped galley and to port is a counter above the refrigeration that is both top and front loading.

On the port side of the aft deck is the companionway to the aft double cabin with the navigation station VHF radio and instrument panel for the engine. Below both companionways is the access to the engine room. All areas provide plenty of ventilation and natural light through deck prisms and overhead hatches.
The galley features a large Dickinson diesel stove with oven and a small countertop two burner propane stove. Lots of counter space with storage below in drawers and cupboards.
