Pros:
Cons:

Heavy displacement ketch; beautiful appearance; great liveaboard & offshore cruiser. Check condition of teak decks carefully, as well as potential rot if original wood spars. Iron fuel tanks also a cause for concern.

This boat has a tendency to roll in heavy seas and I've had difficulty steering in reverse, but I feel totally safe in heavy weather. Very roomy. Stout; high freeboard.

I'm very interested in getting in touch with other owners.
