This boat is designed by Carl Alberg. It is a long keel with cut-away forefoot and there is a rudder attached to the aft end of the keel (much less likely to snag lobster/crab traps or any other submerged object). The rig is a masthead sloop with main and self-tending jib. She is intended to be a capable coastal cruiser, though some have taken these boats farther.

The mast and boom are aluminum. Standing rigging is stainless steel wire and consists of forestay, backtay, 2 masthead shrouds, and fore and aft lower shrouds on port and starboard sides.
Running rigging is dacron.
There are three winches, all of which are single speed Lewmar 6s, chrome plated. These serve the main halyard, jib halyard, and jib sheet. The main has a 4:1 block and tackle arrangement on a traveler, immediately foreward of, and very handy to, the wheel.
