Pros:
Cons:

I have had this boat for 10 years and have really enjoyed it. It has a swing keel, which has gotten me out of more than one jam. This boat handles great except for the weather helm. I think with some work on the rudder and rig I could fix this. Another plus for the gulf coast 20 is the thick fiberglass. It can take an incredible amount of abuse.

Pros: Acquisition cost
Cons:

The GC20 original jib is cut high and the boat doesn't point as well as other owners' imply. I have slight lee helm and am playing with the rig to see if I can reverse. The new genoa will help, and I'll probably add material to the original jib foot to see what happens. The rudder is not original and I'm fabricating a new composite, kick-up unit.

Hull #20 has held up but ready for some refurb this winter. I'd hate to refinish anything bigger than 20' because I'm lazy but this seems doable.
