Pros:
Cons:

Our Boat, hull #120, seems to be fairly overbuilt, as recently evidenced by a trip in the Chesapeake Bay with seas running a very choppy three feet with an occasional 4 to 5 footer. After motoring in these conditions with steady winds over twenty and gusting past twenty five, and burrying the bow on numerous occasions, the interior remained totally dry. The Atomic Four has been modified (electronic ignition, new water pump, electric fuel pump, new wires plugs and coil, and a thorough cleaning of the carburator) and runs like a clock, burning less than one gallon per hour. All the wiring seems to be old and in need of replacement, but everything still works. There were only two spots in the deck that had any water intrusion and they were both very easy to fix. The hull has no water in the fibreglass at all. We had to replace the prop shaft due to extensive corrosion and that was a job better left to a professional due to the confined space under the cockpit. There is more storage space then is at first apparent, but still not an overabundance. The rigging is overbuilt, but we are not sure if it was replaced with something larger then was originally installed. It sails nicely in anything above ten knots, but will still move in lighter air, just not too fast. Be sure to reef the main first and at about fifteen knots, and you should not have any problems. For the price we paid for the boat including all the repairs and upgrades, we could not be happier.
