Pros:
Cons:

A very solid boat, with fibreglass work of high quality. Nice teak interior that is attractive. Stiff, with decent sailing performance. Construction and appointments are well done, with eight opening ports and a CQR on a small extension on the bow. At twenty years of age, electronics and wiring are in need of replacement.

Pros:
Cons:

Very well built, solid boat. The totaly teak interior was well executed. We added louvered vents under the settees to help prevent mildew & mold. The 10hp Yanmar diesel was extremely reliable and could be hand cranked to start if needed (not as easy as it sounds though). Three to four hours running per gallon of fuel was typical. The only problem I ever had was the plywood under the teak&holley cabin sole rotted out and I had to replace it when the boat was about 7 years old (easier than it sounds). I would have liked the bilge to be a little deeper, it doesn't hold much water. I sailed my boat from New Orleans to Cancun, Mexico and back, 600 miles of open water. On the return trip we had the pleasure of a full gale for 3 days, with winds up to 40 knots. Although it was a rough ride at times, and keeping things dry below deck was a challenge, I never once felt like the boat was in jeapordy. I would buy another one if I was looking for a boat in that size range.

Pros:
Cons:

Solid sailboat with above average construction. Sails well in a stiff breeze, even under jib alone if you're feeling a bit lazy. Handles well in ocean swells. Amazing joinery below. Feels like a little ship. Cockpit is large with a bridge deck. Great for entertaining but safe in the ocean. A great buy if you can find one in good shape.

Pros: well built, sails well and attractive
Cons: genoa winches to far forward of helm, weather helm

Now in my fourth season with my 1979 I am very pleased with the boat. I do coastal cruising in Buzzards Bay, mostly day sailing with an occasional weekend in the Elizabeth Islands and the Vinyard. Points quite well and with its new sails has good speed. Handles swells with no problem but the Bay is notably choppy and its not too happy in a chop. Can develop a bit of a weather healm in winds over 15 knots but reefing the headsail and /or main puts a stop to that. I cannot question the overall quality of the boat. It is well put together and quite attractive below decks. Glad i bought her!
