Sailing Bahamas in 15' Sharpie Sailboat

“LITTLE CRUISER is our fifteen foot sharpie designed and built by our friend Matt Layden as a coastal microcruiser. Constructed in 1988, LITTLE CRUISER was one of his favorite boats and he sailed her engineless as far North as the Bay of Fundy in Canada and as far South as the Exumas in the Bahamas. After we acquired her in 1992, we sailed Little Cruiser to the Bahamas seven more times.”
