Pros:
Cons:

Nice open daysilor. Mast originally difficult to step, but can be easily modified to make it easy for one person. Transom unsually deep (little rocker) but seems to sail well neverthless. Should plane well, given shape -- haven't had mine long enough to know. Very stable boat for family sailng. Fun.

Pros: Very stable and forgiving, lots of seating space
Cons: Wheel mechanism for raising/lowering keel

As another writer noted, the mast can be raised and lowered by one person with the aid of a "crutch" fitted with pintles and seated in the rudder gudgeons. My only complaint: the 1978 model that I own has a cumbersome, hand-turned wheel to raise the keel; the spool for winding the cable is exposed and can catch a finger if you're careless and the rope that secures the keel can slip off the tension-cleat. In all other ways, though, a very nice day sailer seating up to six adults. The jib fairleads are conveniently located making it easy to sail alone.

Pros: Well built, fast yet well behaved day sailer
Cons: None that I can see.

I've had mine for a couple of years now. Hull#217. For a 30+ year old boat, this Harry Sindle design has held up amazingly well. The hull still shines and its age is only evidenced by occasional checking around the deck. It's a nice looking boat with a high aspect ratio mainsail that stands 26+' AWL. The center board is 125#of coated steel and on my version the crank is covered, not exposed to wayward fingers and there is no rope to secure it. With a home-made crutch I can raise and lower the mast by myself in a few minutes and she easily sails single-handed. Self-bailing cockpit is nice. Room for necessities in the up front and rear compartments. Towing is no problem with my 4 cyl Honda.
