Thanks for the comment. I really wanted the blue hull and although they refused to do it, the factory finally broke down and agreed. Not sure if they have done it since, so I might have the only one out there. Overall, I love this boat. It is exactly what I was looking for. Fun, yet stable enough to run around on. I will be installing a boom kicker and a tiller tender this spring which should make raising and lowering the main much easier. I'm sorry I didn't know of their existence when I bought the boat or I would have installed them right away. Cheers!
