Pros:
Cons:

Design - 23' water ballast sloop rig trailer sailer

Key features - Boom furling full batten main, roller furling jib, kickup rudder & centerboard, no backstay, sleeps 4 ( v-berth & under cockpit queen size berth)

Strengths - Fast & easy to sail. Rig time from pulling into ramp parking lot to leaving the dock for a sail -- under 15 minutes! Light weight (water ballast) and low trailer height (swingup centerboard) make easy trailering.

Weaknesses - Due to water ballast and shallow draft - low headroom below. Standard trailer is not galvanized (california environmental laws).

Overall Satisfaction - Excellent

Pros:
Cons:

This near-shore and lakes sailboat has smooth lines and a very large cockpit. With the 30 foot Tall Rig mast I get to enjoy extended sailing during the quiet times of little wind where other makes lean towards motor assistance.

The use of a water ballast system allows me to tow with an auto instead of a truck.

On the road, the swing keel kept getting hit by the trailer axle, I have since fixed that problem.

Once or twice the jib sheets got caught on the forward part of the gooseneck.

Having a roller reefing main and a furling jib, I have enjoyed sailing through a broad range of wind speeds from as low as one to near 20 knots. Others tell me they have exceed 40 knots.

The overall package and great sailing abilities leaves me with little to say except "I like it!"
