Designer Hake has taken the same basic beamy hull that he created in 1979 with the Slipper Deckhouse 17 (page 59), spruced her up with fancier oval ports and other gear, increased some of her dimensions slightly, and changed her name. For a while she was available with either a sloop rig or a very tall cat rig (bridge clearance 33' for the cat, 8' less for the sloop). The cat rig is shown here. Best features: We think she's relatively good-looking, with springy sheer, pronounced tumblehome, molded bulwarks, and nice fittings such as shiny stainless opening oval ports and cowl vent on the cabintop. Her self-bailing cockpit is deep and comfortable for two people, and her interior is relatively spacious considering her modest LOD; her Space Index is highest of her comps. The rotating, freestanding carbon-fiber mast is 28' 6" long, weighs only 33 pounds, and is secured by a two-foot-long sliding aluminum tube inside the mast, which couples the upper mast to a rotating mast bearing on the deck. It is claimed that the vessel takes less than five minutes to rig at a boat ramp. Worst features: Her shallow fixed keel, despite the small wings, prevents pointing as high as her comps, especially in light air.
