Notes

AKA FREEDOM 39 EXPRESS.
A Pilot House version was also available. (See FREEDOM 39 PILOT HOUSE)
The first boat was rigged as a schooner, with foremast considerably shorter than the main mast (both unstayed). How many boats were equipped with this rig is unknown.
EY & PY = forward mast.
Thanks to ‘Lazy Jaques’ for providing corrections.
