Pros:
Cons:


A great old IOR designed racer/cruiser by Doug Peterson. Well built and good standard hardware. Original ports start to leak after 10 years or so. Easy to sail by two with roller furling and Dutchman. The boat handles very well in all of the Lake Erie conditions I have be in (6 to 8 foot waves). She is powered by a Pathfinder (VW Rabbit) diesel spinning a Martek 24 inch folding prop. This engine/prop combo is great, lots of power, and reverse is good. It will drive the boat in all conditions. The berths are 6'8" long with only a V berth cabin, 6'2" standing head room. Plenty of room for additional batteries. Sailing this boat, I feel very safe, comfortable and sailing very fast.
