Pros: Very stiff boat, excellent in heavy weather and a great all round performer
Cons: Have to watch the wooden mast step - the biges must be kept dry

We have had this boat in our family for twenty six years. We have extensively upgraded it over time and turned it into a modern fast family cruiser with hot and cold running water, reverse cycle air conditioning and more. The headroom is limited but we are short so it does not matter much. We cruise with a family of four and sometimes five in comfort. The boat handles and sails very well and indeed much better than almost anything built today. It has a ballast displacement ratio of over fifty percent which makes her stiff and she is relatively narrow so she is close winded. Her best point of sail is a close reach and boat for boat she is faster than a J 105 which is not unexpected as she was conceived as an IOR one tonner when she was designed.
