It is a beautiful boat and the lines are even better than some of Mabrys' boats and you can just imagine a sailfish dancing behind the transom. Very cool.
Here is one of two bamboo outriggers that came with the boat. This are the original outriggers. I'm not going to use them because I have brand new outriggers for the boat plus if I brake the bamboo outriggers I can't replace them. I use them now as a conversation piece. Name:  IMAG0006.jpg
