In the 1970''s, quite a few large corporations went into the sailboat business. (I''ve always figured they needed the tax loss.) Chrysler was one of them. Chrysler built a widely diverse line of daysailors and small cruisers. Build quality on the daysailors was quite good and for the most part they were nice little boats.
The small cruisers were not as well built and relied on some poorly constructed proprietary parts for some key components (rudders for example). They also did not sail as well as some of their contemporaries being a little tender and ''corky''.
