Pros:
Cons:



Sloop rigged 5.5 ft draft. User friendly with easy 2 step cabin entry and 6'6" bench seats in cockpit which are ideal for sleeping while underway. Good speed with sound lay up. Absoulutely no blisters. Chain plates need calked each year or better check for dry rot on bulkheads. She turns quickly and holds well when wind comes up. Sails best to weather but also good off. Lays in a groove at 6.5 to 7 knots and has perfect balance at that speed. She cruises well and is still competitive with modern production boats. Recommend a 150 and full battoned main for up to 18 knots, change to 100 genoa then up to 28 knots, go to 1 reef for up to 35 knots. Sails well with a drifter off the wind. Gas tank liners will deteriorate and need replaced and engine parts for the Palmer engine are getting very difficult to find. Had to have rudder rebuilt in 98. I find it tough to sail other boats and enjoy coming back to this one. I still use basic rig and it is simple and trouble free. V berth sleeps comfortably for a 6 foot person and has 2 hanging lockers and two storage compartments below birth. Fold up bunk beds starboard with single bed to port in main cabin. Great fold down table in cabin. Large single berth starboard aft. 30 gallons of water and 30 gallons of gas. Good size lazaret but not closed off from engine. Large ice box and alcohol stove with oven. No hot water and no shower. Sink to port and head to starboard located between V berth and main cabin with doors to V berth and to cabin.. Very simple to winterize. Molded in battery box for two batterys below bottom step. No anchor well but rope and chain storage in front of V Berth. Recent survey price $18,000.
