Further Comments

Coquina has been sailed continuously every year. She usually winters in the water and is hauled only for maintenance. She's very sea kindly. She'll sail herself in a steady breeze close hauled with no tiller lashing if her sails are balanced properly. I wooded the hull and mast in 2010 and freshly painted bottom and topsides again this spring (2014.)The deck also 90% painted in 2014. All hardware is the original Merriman bronze, including all winches. Spares as well. She was designed as a MORC (mini ocean racer/ cruiser) by Sparkman & Stephens and she's taken good care of this old sailor. With a little investment she'll sail beautifully for another 50 years.
