Great boat! Stands up very well in weather and also sails well in light air.

Pros: Good in a stiff breeze, seems to be well made, easy access to engine and most components, sails well to her phrf
Cons: Chain plates for mast shrouds attach deep into the fiberglass abyss making inspection impossible with cutting out some fiberglass. Traveler is not user friendly under sail, big disadvantage during club racing.

Phenomenal boat for what I paid for it. Tons of room for a cruising couple and tons of amenities. Came with a decent main and new furling headsail, autohelm st4000 was broken but look on eBay these are cheap to replace and work nearly as well as new models. I paid 700 for a refurbished complete system and in less than 30 minutes had it up and running since an old st4000 was already in place. Easy boat to maintain, engine well accessible, mast shroud chain plates not so much, huge head, smaller vberth, the double berth with the table removed is pretty awesome. I am 6'1, 250 lbs and this the perfect size boat for me. Only thing I want different is a traveler and mainsheet I can trim at the helm while underway. As is the traveler doesn't get used much short-handed. Cockpit seems to fit 6 comfortably and 8 passangers seems the magic number before I feel cramped. Pretty sweet boat if you have cruising dreams and want to be competitive in your local phrf fleet. You won't find used sails that fit the boat perfectly, however.
