Pros:
Cons:

Sloop rig, dual genoa track, tiller, sleeps 5.

Beautiful sailing boat--fairly new sails, large sail inventory, awlgripped in 95, both topsides and deck.

Some directional instability when overpowered.

Pros:
Cons:

Fast (especially in light airs). Lots of room for a 29 ft boat. Very forgiving in rough weather. Reef early. She will maintain a speed even when reefed. I've had this boat for 8 years and am very pleased so far.

Pros:
Cons:

Launched White Magic August 3, 1999. Strenghs are: great fast and forgiving yacht. Has inboard tracks, 2GM Yanmar, foil gibstay and Herculees 190 instruments. Only weakness is that there is a small leak at the corner of the port larger window.

Pros:
Cons:

Summary: A really solid boat good on lakes in 30+ kt winds but I think not good for serious blue water. High aspect ratio main puts all the driving power on the Genoa a larger mainsail area would be good.
Key Features of "Corker" Fully automated for cruising Autohelm ST50 systems - Speed; Depth; Wind; Steering Compass; ST4000 Autopilot + Differential Garmin GPSMAP 175. Garhauer solid Boomvang Rigged for PHRF racing.
Sometimes awkward to run cabling for auxilliary systems.
Strengths: sails great heels early but reputation for being overly tender is unwarranted.
Weaknesses: Rudder post is diificult to lubricate - I installed a grease nipple and a long pipe to the gun that minimizes the need to crawl under the fuel pipe and getting down to the engine is a pain. The other shortcoming is the table down below - it takes too much room and would be better with a modified folding rig - I am working on a design for this.
Overall satisfaction: Very happy - the only problem for me is that to get a significantly more roomy boat you need to go to a 34 or 35 AND spend a lot of money. This boat (if looked after)is incredible value at anything below $35K
