Pros:
Cons:

This boat was built by the father of a friend of mine from a "kit" which included a set of plans and a bag of brass screws. It needed refinishing when I got it & had not been sailed in over 5 years. I did lots of sanding, painted it with epoxy paint, varnished the seats, mast, & tiller. It needs new sails--just has musslin now. Doesn't point up very high, under jib alone, won't make progress to windward. I have taken it to Cumberland Island (8 miles one way) and sailed it in the Tennessee river lakes quite a bit. It has an open cockpit, very small area under the front deck, but it is a boat. I'd like to make a small cabin (the cockpit is big enough to seat 6) I'd also like to put a couple viewing ports in the floor (hull) so two people could lie down and see below--a very cheap glass bottom boat. It weathervanes quickly into the wind and has a tendency to get caught in irons if you don't come-about quickly. I'd certainly opt for a few more feet of boat if I were going to invest the time to build from scratch. I run a 4.6hp outboard that will push it to 6 mph. If I were building it, I'd sure make some type of kick-up rudder for those times when you hit bottom (the centerboard pivots into its trunk) as I have broken the gudgeon out once--thus ending a nice afternoon of sailing; watchout for stumps on TVA lakes.
