Small Craft Advisor Review

According to Small Craft Advisor: "Originally designed by Stanley C. Smith for a singlehanded crossing of the Atlantic, the jaunty, pug-nosed Potter’s legendary reputation has grown with each new voyage of daring. Two of the most notable took place in the 1970s. John Van Ruth sailed his Potter, Freya, 2700 miles from Mexico to Hawaii in 1972, and a few years later David Omick navigated the Inside Passage from Seattle to Alaska.

But the most mythical of all Potter feats involved the boat’s designer and a voyage he undertook on October 12th, 1965. Having boldly offered to hand deliver one of his 14-footers to a customer in Sweden, Stanley Smith set out across the North Sea that October day on a wild 36-day adventure that very nearly cost him his life. Despite enormous trials, he remained impressed with the little boat’s performance. He wrote: In all ways the boat handles beautifully in reasonable conditions—fast and exhilarating in a fresh breeze, close-winded and hard to get into irons."

Enough said about performance.
