Island Trader / vs Gulfstar Feedback requested
You might try to find a Hughes Northstar 40. These were nicely built Sparkman and Stevens designed ketches, sloops and cutters. The best sailing version was the Tall Cutter rig with cut away forefoot and skeg hung rudder but there were full keel and fin keel with atatched rudder versions as well.
The Gulfstars are not too bad but you need to be more selective and have some surveying skills sort through the good ones or not so good ones.
I need to go, more later,
