Design 2103 - Anjacaa

This centerboard sloop was built of aluminum by Palmer Johnson and launched in 1972. The design brief was for an I.O.R. rated racer with comfortable accommodations and reasonable draft. The boat was designed for Arthur K. Watson, son of Thomas Watson of IBM. Arthur Watson would become president of IBM World Trace Corporation (subsidiary of IBM) and Ambassador to France from 1970-1972. It seems he died a couple of years after this boat was delivered to him.

I can't quite figure out why the main is reefed in these images.

Here are the plans.
