When the editors of Family Circle had asked for a triple-purpose boat (sailing , rowing , and motoring) that was easy for beginners to build, and that could be carried on top of a car, we got to work. The 3-in-1 soon proved to be a capable little performer, outreaching our hopes as a multiuse boat. Only 10' long, the 3-in-1 sails with a surprising amount of spirit in a breeze, even with a family of four aboard. Sail balance is nice, and tacking is surefire; the 3-In-1 is probably our easist boat to sail. The rowing seat doubles as a daggerboard box, and there's a built in outboard well for small outboards or electrics. Storage fore and aft provides space for flotation foam or supplies.
