Designed and built in Ontario by Vandestadt and McGruer.
Trailerable, sleep 5, poptop, roomy with lots of storage, positive flotation, anchor locker.
Quality in every detail, very stable.
Not built for speed.

Pros:
Cons:



Design: Nice lines, looks like a sailboat should. Swing keel & rudder lets you gunkhole & if you run aground just crank keel up & go, Pop top gives you standing headroom at stove & dinette. Sits nice & low on trailer for towing. Great boat for learning on, very responsive.

Strengths: Well built, lots of storage for its size, built in foam flotation (unsinkable), fairly fast, faster than a Catalina 22, large V-berth, easy to launch & retrieve, rigging takes about 2 hrs.

Weaknesses: More tender than fixed keel (reef early), jib sheeting angles not great, no traveler (has bridle system), needs baby stay added to stop mast pumping in high winds.

Overall: very satisfied
