A183 Bluster does not have board seals at the base of the keel boxes. She has flexible seals.

I like to think that her success in the East Coast races was due to the skill of her crew rather than the boat herself. She was always sailed with a full cruising inventory and was not stripped out (other than leaving the dinghy behind).
