I picked up this gem for a song in a boatyard auction. Have since updated every system and have sailed her up and down the Washington coast several times, including in dreaded winter! Build like a brick house. Handles well. She is a stiff pocket cruiser worthy of mention when considering a capable offshore cruiser. “Quark” sailed her maiden voyage from SF to Tahiti and back. She was built from a kit by David Case and he recently wrote a short book about he and his wife’s voyage titled, “Sail’n South” - an adventurous story.
