It can pass through shallow waters easy and with a cool trick float over knee deep water.
They do a mean wing on wing as well.

I googled it for you.
Wing on Wing--When a schooner goes before the wind with one sail out at nearly right angles on the port side and the other in the same position on the starboard side she is said to be wing and wing, and presents a beautiful sight.
Its more cool on a Sandlighter because of the way it raises the stern where the captain sits at the tiller.
exciting speed for a boat with out a dagger board and shallow keel.
oops two more terms. :-)

So is the wing on wing the cool trick to get through knee deep water?

crossing shallow water is done buy leaning the boat on its side but not under sail.
It allows you to pass through places you would normally get stuck. If you stand on the side and holding the stay( the wire holding the mast) using your body weight, lean over board to lean the boat almost on its side, It floats over the shallow obstacle.

As well as your bird watching trips, do you fancy running a basic sailing course?
