Cons:

This is a full-keel sloop, what might today be called a
"pocket cruiser." Is very stable, very forgiving. Solid in
pretty strong winds (30 knots OK). Very heavily built. Very
pretty design, turns heads, gets compliments. Look for deck
problems -- delamination or core rot is common. B/c of ****-
pit design, water often present in sole. Close scuppers while
sailing avoids this (fair weather only). I love the boat.

My boat is one that was subjected to an unskilled re-design. It's previous owner added a camper top to the cabin, ruining the design. It does sail very well, however. It is in renovation as I write. It will eventually look and sail as it once did. Advise from other Greenwich 24 or Cape Dory 25 owners is very welcomed!

Allied Greenwich 24 is a great little boat. A solid sailor and sturdily built. I have owned mine for the past 10 years and it has never let me down. A great day sailor with 3 aboard but too small for extended cruising with comfort, sort of like camping on the water. The boat is best when the wind picks up , a reef in the main and a working jib.

This boat has had the cabin top cut off and has sat outside for years with no cover. It was filled with at least three feet of water at one time. I am beginning a major renovation (something I would not do were this boat not such a well built and pretty little thing)and would appreciate any information.

this isn't quite a review but i'm buying a 1969 greenwich 24 and am trying to find a proper mainsail. (used is preferable) The boat is a couple hundred miles a way and was given sails. it turned out what i was told to be a mainsail is really a jib. I was wondering if anyone knew what size the internal slides are that run in the mast track. I can't just run back up there and measure for myself. any help would be greatly appreciated. anything else i should be aware of before i drop it in the water would also be appreciated. thanks
