Pros:
Cons:

Alot of people crap on Seafarer but my experience with the older hulls are they are built as strong and stronger than most other boats.As with any older boat everything needs to be looked at.Most of these boats have different interior quaility but well worth the asking prices you see.all cruiser and probably one of the best buys for cruising sailors.

Pros: Nice open interior layout. Full Keel.
Cons: Liner makes it hard to access tanks and wiring. I've cut in access hatches.

Overall I like it. It's been a project for me as I got it on the hard with the windows blown out. That's okay, the price was right and now I have a boat that I would not be able to buy in my budget. My boat did have blisters (which were an easy fix), and the interior was largely "paper teak," but I have re-done much of that and she is becoming very pretty. I look forward to sailing her once done. I cannot vouch for her sailing performance.

UPDATE:

The boat seems solidly built. My cockpit floor is a little soft from poorly mounted hardware that leaked and rotted the balsa core. I am pulling the skin out of the cockpit and doing a glass and foam cored replacement. It would be smart to check for spongy feeling around hardware on the decks if you are considering one.

I have one other pretty small section 5" round where a dingy was mounted on deck and the hardware was not properly bedded.

I am still feeling good about my project. When I picked her up she wasn't much to look at, but she is quickly becoming a nice boat. Rhoads drew some nice lines in her that have grown on me with time. The hull shape is very classic and is still common on classically designed boats today. From the water up she looks similar to a Morris m36 (but not as nice). Overall I think these boats are a great value. I would still happily get another.
