I like the ladder leaning against the boat. Same one I have at the aeroport for window washing up in the vaulted ceilings. But who lets the ladder lean against the hull possibly scratching it. How disrespectful. Of course I jest. I like the pop-up overhead.
On second look this boat has lots of potential. It's kind of cool.
The trailer is interesting, hanging the boat from just the hull bunks. NO support for the keel. Very interesting. Do we need keel bunks? What about the hull 'oil canning' and denting?
That's a sturdy looking compression post. No bow vee block on the trailer and interesting extending trailer tongue. Don't stand on the brakes!

skip.

There is support for the keel - one roller.   I was leery of the no V block for the bow. There may have been one once, but the trailer was seldom used, if ever.

Always thought the flush deck near vertical cabin side design quite practical in a small vessel, in that it adds quite a bit of interior VOLUME (for living and storage) as well as COMFORTABLE SITTING HEADROOM. Side walkways on a small boat really impact the interior volume available in the cabin.

Formed this opinion years ago when I first saw and sailed a friend's Ensenada 20 up close and personal at our Marina.

I'm sure she'll clean up quite well and fully agree that the MASTHEAD Rig is a big PLUS if you appreciate the value of various headsails as I do.
