Boat has everything to make it go fast and is ready to race or would be a great bay cruiser/weekender.
Reason for selling is I have reduced my fleet from 3 boats but still have 1 boat to many. The other boat potentially for sale is a Herreshoff 46 but is still a work in progress. Happy to sell either/both.
