Fantastic, well done. Lotta boat for length!

I see a lot of offset 'centre?' boards in pocket cruiser / daysailers? How does that work? Does it favour / detract one tack / sailing point from another?

Hey Dig,

Thank you, she is a big little boat and I have had a lots of fun with her.

I have the off center board on Primrose and on a 16 ft sailing Pirogue and to the best of my skills have never thought twice about better performance on one tack vs another. I am not a racer and then again the boats that I have built were not designed for racing but a hardcore racer may notice some very subtle differences if there are any.

It probably has an affect but I would guess that it would be so small that it would defy measurement.  It does however greatly affect the space in the middle of the boat.
