boatmonkey is on a distinguished road
I just bought an 87 and find it to be pretty well rounded boat. Comfortable and fast enough to impress at the club meets (PERF is 132-135 on Lake Michigan). I too replaced the traveller with a Harken rig.

You should be able to pick one of these boats up in good condition in the 30's to 40K depending on outfitting, condition etc and if you do, I'd say you will get a lot of boat for your money
