This sporty 16 footer is the perfect scow for 2 moderately sized people weighing a total of 240-310 lbs. to race or pleasure sail. Typically, this includes combinations of husband and wife, parent and child, brothers and sisters, and graduates from the junior racing programs-as well as other adults. The boat has all the sail-handling adjustments necessary for a modern sloop and a true scow hull design that makes her very fast and lively. She is easy to sail and not complicated with spinnaker gear, making the crew-work less demanding than other boats.
