"My Ensign Classic Lady-L #2000 is my 4th Ensign in 35 years. It is the best looking, best quality, and the safest Ensign I've ever seen. Although fully race equipped it is often day sailed with a crew or single-handed. It will be a treasured jewel in my family for 40+ years."

"The Fearless Frog is my fourth boat, and the one I should have gotten in the first place. It is a dreamboat, combining everything I want: it's fun to sail, easy for one man to handle, responsive and safe. It is a wonderful design, and built by Ensign Spars Inc. to top quality standards. There won't be a fifth boat for me: the Frog and I will grow old together."
