Pros:
Cons:

New boat (to me) purchased on Aug. 3, 1998 (Writing this on Sept. 4) This is a 30 ft. sloop with Volvo MD11, 23 hp inboard diesel with saildrive. So far, so good. Very handy, moves well in light airs (what else on Chesapeake Bay in August?), lots of room and everything works! Not a "pretty" boat, handsome might be better word. Lots of freeboard, massive transom, huge cockpit. Wheel steering (Whitlock, all mechanical no wire or clips). Windlass makes anchoring easier. Genoa is big and heavy, now I understand why roller furling is so popular. (I didn't need it on my Westerly 26 ft Centaur.) More details to follow as I use the boat more.

Pros:
Cons:

Great boat for heavy air and rough seas.I have owned a 30 Moody for 4 years and my only concern is with the connection of the boom to the steering. Yet it seems to hold. The boom can be roller reefed which is good in sudden storms. This is a roomy boatwhich makes it ideal for cruising.
