Pros:
Cons:

This is a very fast postwar design, an early fiberglass centerboard racer/daysailer. Mine has been restored 1995-1997, and has new North sails in 1998. The hull will plane on a broad reach (beam reach if you've got heavy crew!) in about 18-20 kts. wind. Higher than that and you must reef the main and/or stay in sheltered waters. Kept at a mooring in Casco Bay, it's a great ocean boat if you're athletic and experienced. Exhilirating ride, moves well in light air, esp. when it's puffy. Great for shaming much larger keelboats :-) but terrible for sleeping aboard, uncomfortable as hell. A 4 HP British seagull powers it at about 4 kts.
