One feature I like is the "bulletproof" steering (rack and pinion) that the older IPs have. True, you do have one leg on each side of the wheel shaft but I never had an issue with that. Its just a feature one gets used to. I also like to reach along at 7+ knots in a 25 knot seabreeze feeling secure and safe. (maybe I'm just a great sailor)
I've sailed and chartered many sailboats and would be happy to own any of several well made ones.
