Pros:
Cons:

Great boat for a small family for week long outings. Not an off shore boat but very solid and safe fir interior lakes and rivers.

Trailers easily. I pull mine with a 1988 Ford LTD wagon with 5.0liter fi/V8 with towing package.

Very good weather helm on this boat. Close hauls very nicely.

A well laid out interior and extrior.

Would recomend this boat to anyone.

Pros:
Cons:

Salvaged after underwater for 2 weeks, then abandoned for several years, restored with new rigging, sails, pressure water sys, cushions, Garmin GPS + depthsounder, VHF, AC & DC electrical sys, Yamaha 4-cycle 9.9 HP auxillary, resulting in a first class small boat, sleep six with cockpit full berth cushions. Great little boat. Custom Triad trailer used for FL ->CA tow, no problems.

Pros:
Cons:

Exceptionaly roomy and well apointed for it's size. Built by Rebel Industries, a division of WellCraft. Unusual 8 1/2 foot beam and large 7' cockpit. We have owned this boat for 4 yrs. It takes rough water very well and is very stable due to the beam. Swing keel, small galley & chart table, long berths and v-berth with head and privacy curtain. Great overnigter and family boat. Easily trailerable.

Pros:
Cons:

I purchased this boat in 2000, this boat seems to be very well built and has aged well. It's slightly tender due to stub keel but very balanced and well behaved in 20 kt winds.

The layout and roominess is outstanding, with the large cockpit, large cabin and pop-top. Opening ports and lexan forward hatch are a nice touch. Easy to spend time on and not feel cramped. I don't know how many were made, but I would recommend it highly.

I still have this boat and like it more every year. Fantastic cockpit and still very comfortable to "camp" in. Very well behaved in high winds (25-35kts) with reefed main only.

Pros: lead keel
Cons: glass around bulkheads

Great boat sails good . Well balanced. Has the lead down in the water where it belongs not up in the hull. Therefore she stays upright and on her feet much better than water ballast inside the hull.
Off shore? Maybe jump to the Bahamas on a good day . On a stormy day I'll stay in the port and watch some tv.
