Julien can’t let go of this youth. He sailed this sweet knockabout as a teenager from the great South Bay Long Island to the Bahamas. Social distancing enabled Julien to get on it.

Julien has decided to build a cold molded version. It will be a trailered boat that will not be effected by the wet dry cycles. This is a diversion from the norm, being a female half mold in which the visible outer strakes will be laid in first. Julien will invert the stations for the port side.
