This boat has very little wear and tear on it as it was used primarily for local sailing and never traveled for the first 4 years of its life. It  has been been trailered a total of 4 times. In 2018 it had a full fairing job on the hull, keel, and rudder done by Chris Small Boatworks. It won 2 races at Charleston Race Week in 2018 and finished 10th overall at the World Championship in Marblehead. It has not been used since.
