Pros:
Cons:

DESIGN
Swing keel, sloop rig.

KEY FEATURES
Lots of sitting room (up to 5 people), small stowage in bow.
Sealed hull, self righting. Roller reefing system. Stainless hardware.

STRENGTHS
Lightweight and easy to tow and launch. Lots of sitting room. Fun to sail and relativly fast. Great learning boat because it is self-righting and can't be sunk due to positive floatation. Quick to set up.
Can be parked in most garages or carports.

GENERAL
The boat is easy to sail and performs well in light to moderate winds. Prefers 5 to 15 knots but can be sailed in higher winds with reefed (built in roller reef boom) main alone. Optional boom vang is a good idea if maximum speed is important.

WEAKNESSES
Difficult to mount some motors without additional mounting hardware. Company out of business.

SATISFACTION
I would recommend it for anyone looking for a good value on a day sailer of this size.
