Pros:
Cons:

The ketch I own (owns me) has teak decks with water in the core. According to Bob Perry this is more of a nuisance than a real problem. "just wipe the excess moisture up", I was told. I have been doing this but have a concern. The chain plates as they are bolted in do not afford the inspection that I feel is necessary. Does anyone know how the bolts are affixed to the blocks that are glassed to the hull? After removing a chain plain plate is there a way to replace these bolts if they are in fact corroded?
I enjoy my boat and have found her to be a pleasure to sail. I have, however had numerice problems due to the lack of past maintenance. The overhead panelling had to be replaced because the hand rails and main sheet travler (wood) had loosened over time. I have done a total rebuild of the boat now going into my 4th year. Expect her completed by fall.
If anyone has any suggestions regarding to chain plates or just wants to discuss some of the problems I've encountered and remedies for them, please get back to me at peters1@llnl.gov.
All-in-all she is a good boat and I expect many years of enjoyment with her.

I am pleased with the boat. I liveaboard and it is very comfortable. Since the boat is older, I have spent a lot of time rebuilding most of it. When the wind is up, it is in it's element.
I rebuilt the engine and at the same time replaced the fuel tank. I had to cut the old 50 gal tank out as mentioned in one of the other reviews. However I designed a 60 gal tank that fit through the stbd locker opening. If anybody would like details, please email me.
