Pros:
Cons:

A well thought out design with some small oversights such as a bilge pump not located at the lowest point in the boat.

A terrific upwind machine but weak downwind. This might be resolved with a 155 headsail instead of the standard 140. The standard prop (16 x 9) should be replaced with a folder at the first opportunity.

This is a boat that will satisfy your needs until you can realize the dream.

Pros:
Cons:

The boat is great - sails and powers well. Handles large waves with ease.

To prevent weather helm, it is important to reef earlier than you would on another boat - anything over 15kts and you'll need to reduce sail to keep control.

Very liveable inside. Summer weekends or weeks in Southern California are great -- more storage than you think.

Overall, a great boat for 1-4 people. Easy to singlehand.

This boat is currently for sale see: http://members.aol.com/sailfocus for information!
