Cons:

A very good older boat with a lot of cabin room. Beamy, but points well and is a lot faster than expected. A really sweet boat.

Pros:
Cons:

Weaknesses:
Cabin is a bit high. Viewing can be difficult at times. Cabin is also quite wide which has resulted in trampolining (sp?).
Motor cannot be raised and can be difficult to access. Electric start is really a must due to the location of the motor in the rear compartment.
Strengths:
Very stable and solid.
Overall Satisfaction:
I have very much enjoyed the boat. She handles very well and has met our expectations.

I sailed this boat for over 12 years on S.F. Bay. They were originally rigged a little light for the Bay's regular strong wind conditions. I installed double lowers for better mast support. The original spreaders were a flimsy U bracket that failed on lots of these boats. I replaced mine with some nice aluminum castings. The original boat design called for the mast to be back several inches from where it is, so its actually located just in front of the cross beam which should support it. I put an additional aluminum plate under the mast step for additional rigidity, but the deck still suffered from some compression. Some owners installed a pipe support just to the left of the head extending down to the front edge of the keel for additional stiffness. There's lots of room down below for a 25 footer, but I couldn't quite stand up. I think there must be about 5'6" of clearance. Contrary to what others have said, I had no trouble fitting a 6 hp Johnson in the lazarette and later a 8 hp Nissan. The Nissan needed to be turned to the side as it was lifted up to close the lazrette hatch though.

We purchased this boat in the fall of 97 and we are excitedly looking forward to the 98 Sailing year. The boat is in fair condition for its age. The Hull # is 476. The boat has 5 berths,Dinette, AlcoholElectric Stove, Sink, Cooler mounted in the counter top, Port-a-Potti and Plenty of Storage areas. The boat has a 9.9 Honda OB motor and 4 sails, Main, Working Jib, Genoa and Spinnaker. This boat will be sailed in the Great Lakes. We will be able to comment on the SailingHandling of this vessel after a few sails this coming sailing season.
