The boats can an carry either a gaff or Marconi rig.
Benjamin had in mind several requirements for the boat: affordability, easy maintenance, trailer-able, good performance and an appeal to a wide age group.
Note that the hull number is No. 64. One would assume that means it is the 64th boat the company has produced.
Just one more. MacNab of Vineyard Haven gets spruced up by her owners. She's now back at her mooring in the inner harbor.
