Yes Tis one I designed and built, Design is Spring Melody.

I sold the hull a couple of years ago. Was sound then, just needed a 'dry' plank joint re gluing near the fairleads.

see for details of this boat.

Was modified slightly to lighten transom, and new top two planks about 3 years ago.

Spring Melody, designed and built by Miles James in 1999.  I can't find anything on this site about performance?

Performance - some described this one as like 'sh*t' off a shovel downwind, held its own up wind in right conditions. follow link below for last photo I have of it.
