Yes she has nice lines the type of skiff used on Sydney Harbour in the 1930's designed by David Payne.

Its a little tippy getting on board but once we are seated she is a nice cruiser, usually have 3 tiller extensions and a drop in seat so I can change my seating position. Even with a 2hp forty Plus on the Transom she is quicker than a lot of the Putt Putts we cruise with but I don't think she is the ideal boat for a Seagull. We did a few day runs last year in her, a coastal run from Stansbury to Port Vincent and an off shore run we went about 5kms straight out (escorted by Sea Rescue and Coast Guard boats), we were dry and felt safe in her.
