Some of John’s description follows --

“The aim here was to reorient the boat from a rowing boat that would sail, and carry an outboard at a pinch to a sailing boat that would row, and ditto for the eggbeater. She sails well, well enough to get out and enjoy racing in a club dinghy fleet. Surprisingly she rows even better than the earlier boat, particularly when loaded, and the extra beam made her a lot nicer under power.

For those who want to use a little “eggbeater” to push them out past the point in pursuit of the elusive fish, for those who find peace in exploring a quiet tidal creek under oars and for those who want to get away from it all under sail Janette has worked out to be a friend. Simple, inexpensive and with a real touch of class in her lines.”
