Cons:

The HR-25 is a fractional sloop with a spade keel and transom hung rudder. It has a large cockpit, comfortable and dry but divided by the traveller. After my second season I've learned how to avoid it reasonably well. There is a cutout in the port side of the transom for an outboard. The Mercury 7.5hp I use has plenty of power, and a larger engine might be too large to secure out of the water while under sail. The cutout is pretty low to the waterline. I haven't had any problems yet, but I do get nervous if the seas are following. George Poulias heads the HR-25 class association. See his entry for pictures and line drawings. The boat sails and motors very well. It is very responsive to the helm, handles weather and chop smoothly for its size, and is good going to weather. The cockpit is truly comfortable for 4 adults, usable with 6 in a pinch. I'd hate to think of sleeping more than 4, or going for much longer than a weekend with 4 hands. Original setup has all halyards on the mast, but with some additions to get lines led to the cockpit, she's a great boat to singlehand. As a weekend cruiser and day sailer she's perfect - not as fast as more modern designs, but by no means slow.
