Pros:
Cons:

Almost full keel. Draft about 3 1/2 feet. Excellent handling but VERY wet in the cockpit from spray. Was a racing series just before fin keel boats; same era as the Coronado 25. Well built and the glass seems to hold up.

Pros:
Cons:

Very stable, fun to sail in heavy wind. Not a lot of head room below, but how often do you go below. Purchased from 3rd or 4th owner who had nothing which describes the boats specifications, equipment, electrical layout, etc. Unfortunately, he also passed away before we could get together to go over details. After one year of sailing, it was not difficult to figure out; not a complicated rig. Would love to get my hands on a copy of the manufacturer's handbook of basic instructions. Any information would be appreciated.

Pros: points well, great handling, spunky for a molded keel boat
Cons: compact cruiser not much room for enhancements

this is a great little cruiser. simple rigging, fun sized single handler. properly sailed, they'll keep up with 30+ footers. can't put down spray as a negative if you like water spraying on you, but when a lot of the other boats are heading for harbor due to weather, these little scrappers will allow you to have that much more fun. c'mon, get some.............
