Pros: Excellent sailing qualities, trailerable, stable
Cons: She's a _small_ yacht.

A much better sailing boat than most people expect.

The ballasted fin keel (425 pounds of lead!) makes he sail like a proper yacht rather than a centerboard boat of equal size.

Surprisingly comfortable below.
Good head room (especially older boats before the sleek

Side berths are nearly 7 ft long with lined lockers under.
Drop-in cushion for the V berth covers the porta potty location.

Ice chest below companionway hatch.

Battery with switch panel.
Running lights and cabin lights standard.

Cockpit is also nearly 7 ft long.
Fuel locker on one side - "hold" on the other.
High quality stainless steel stancheons, pulpits and lifelines.

Trailers well with a medium sized car or SUV.

Launching and retreiving have no special problems.

Mast is light enough to step solo if desired, but a helper
or a winch makes is very easy to do.
