"Crazybird's design, whilst keeping many of the characteristics and style of the Foureen, is lighter and shallower. The solid timber construction of the original has been replaced by modern clinker ply epoxy planking which is light, relatively inexpensive and quicker and simpler to build. The long deadwood keel has been replaced by a swinging weighted centreboard supplemented by lead pigs under the floorboards making the boat more easily trailable and probably improving speed and windward ability. At the same time some of the seaworthiness of its more solid parent has been sacrificed."
