When LT Rudman, designer of the Beachcomber, decided to put a bermudan rig on the boat, rather than the Lateen, he ended up with a bot that is sometimes confused with the Minisail - the Aquabat.

The bright yellow decks taper far more sharply between bow and mast, and the bright yellow sail is longer in the foot, but otherwise, they ar easily mistaken, which is how Rob, owner of the Aquabat at the coaching weekend, came to be in touch with us. A quick trip to the cvrda website showed what he really had, but luckily he has stayed in touch.

My apologies to Rob for the video clip below. It doesn't show him or the boat off very well, but does show what she looks like.
