She comes with a spare rudder, a kick up rudder, spare mast, sprit, and tiller. Also she is rigged so that all sail controls are within reach of the helmsman. A solar panel keeps a small battery charged to run a bilge pump. The boat is well balanced displaying little weather helm even when the jib is lowered.
