Brief historyThe main saloon is open to the pilothouse with a more open plan layout than many of the Corbins. Has two toilets, one port/aft and the other port/fwd. Vee-berth fwd.

Her first significant voyage was from Canada, through Panama canal, to Fiji, and return to Canada. Then sailed in NE. In approx 2004 relocated to Florida. After 2018 moved through Caribbean, Costa Rica, then Panama canal to southwest Mexico.

(The unit behind the internal helm station once housed a washer/dryer. This was removed approx 2020 and is now storage and a workbench).
