Pros:
Cons:

Great sailing boat. Only complaint is the list to starboard due to weight of outboard.
Points well and found 135% Jib on roller furling perfect match to factory main. Lots of room for two adults plus two kids for weekend cruises. Easy to single hand after you get the lines to the cockpit. Recommend installation of a wheel. Made single handling all the better and worth the cost.

My wife and I have found this to be a great boat. It sails very well on all points and is a good boat for weekends, any longer it might get close. We have sailed the boat in some large Lake Michigan seas. Annual upkeep and repair has been minimal. All in all we really like this boat.

Pros: Points well
Cons: Lack of standing head room (minor issue)

We purchased this boat in 2000, and is a great boat for the money. This model was built in the years when there was still a fair amount of wood in the interior cabin, giving these type boats a much warmer feel about the interiors than the "plastic" interiors of today's trailerable boats. The slight list to starboard on this boat is due to the motor being on the same side as the lazarette where the battery is also stored. I was able to fiberglass in a platform on the interior port side behind the aft berth, and move the battery there. This balanced the boat quite well. We are landlocked lake sailors, but have spent 2 weeks in the San Juan Islands on this boat (2 people), and have survived quite well. This boat easily kept up with a Catalina 30, if that is any indication of it's performance. For a cruiser with a wing keel and a lot of sail area for it's size, this boat is extremely stable and fun to sail. No doubt we will have this boat for years to come.
