Of the structure, a judge said, "Every multihull takes enough time getting through the wind that youve got torsional loads going through the skins, and, man, this one was a tight as a good guitar body." Of the sailplan, one judge said, "They really had their bases covered for a variety of wind ranges in a very safe way. Of the deck layout, another judge said, "Wherever you walked, you had a feeling that it was the most appropriate pathway to where you were going." Of the systems, a judge said, "The electrical panel was absolutely 4.0, and the fuel tank forward was as fine an execution as I have ever seen." For these reasons and others, the judges called her the Best Cruising Multihull for 2002.
