I've had the boat for three years. It reaches very well. Its a little tender but stabilizes somewhere around 20 degrees. I think this gives a smoother ride. The best feature is the wide walkaround. I don't know if they're all rigged the same but mine could have been planned better. The genoa sheets rub the lifelines and the tracks seem a little too far outboard. The winches are too far back. I guess a standard jib and some inboard blocks would help. All the harware was top of the line at the time it was built. It's held up very well considering its history. The v-berth is very useable. Other boats in this class offer really small v-berths that are almost useless. It has a nice balance of cockpit to saloon. Not too much or too little of either. I have a little compression damage under the mast but for the most part it seems well built. I'm keeping it.

Pros:
Cons:

Great Boat for the size it is. Plenty of deck to walk around the cabin top instead of the narrow or over the top style of other boats this size. Cabin layout is spacious due the mast step on the top of the cabin. Plenty of storage for the daysail or weekender. Mine has a new Harken traveler mounted over the hatch that allows for more room in the just-big-enough cockpit. Sails easily single handed, and with the hull being only 7'-6" at the water it manages 7.5 knots in 10 knots of wind under main and 110% genoa. The boat is very stable at high angles of heel. For the price of a basic boat, you can get things in this boat that you usually find in 30 footers.
