Pros: Fast on sails. Fearly safe shore sailing for short trips, easy setup, launch and retrive from water
Cons: No standing up head room, the manufacturer rigging is limited

I sail one in Mazatlan, it has proven to be safe at sea, but since they are old boats need to be revised on all aspects before sailing on the coast.
It has positive flotation which makes it even safer.

I once got caught on a swell, the centerboard broke at the marina entrance( it had some prev. damage i guess), and the boat surfed on a huge wave with no control on the rudder slaming the boat on the sea wall at about 6 knots. It had severe damage to the bow but kept pasengers safe and dry all the way back to the slip.

We now sail every weekend on but had to restore and repair several things to keep the boat safe and seaworthy.
