Pros:
Cons:

The first fiberglass Moody built by Marine Construction and finished by A.H. Moody & Sons, Ltd., Hull #452, designed by Alan Hill. A heavy, full keel blue water cruiser. Deep center cockpit with doghouse enclosure, ketch rigged, aft cabin. Solid glass construction, no core in hull or deck, built to Lloyds A-1 specifications, heavy longitudinal and vertical stringers throughout. Smallish, fairly spartan interior typical of early 60's ocean cruisers. Heavy use of mahogony throughout. Separate aft cabin breaks up total useable space into two separate cabins each with head (twin baby blake toilets). Reliable Perkins 4-108 engine with 100 gals fuel (1500 NM range). Heavy rigging and sails, roller furling main sail, twin headstays.
Built like a proverbial tank, sails well to weather but the mizzen is unusable downwind. An excellent example of early fiberglass construction, no blisters after 34 years in the water.
