Since the underbody is a positive for me, and I assume, is the major reason it doesn''t point well, aside from the possible moisture in the deck core, does anyone have any other negatives why this wouldn''t be a good coastal/inland liveaboard for a singlehander?

The positives for me are the underbody, roominess, deck layout, heavy weather stability, and bridge-friendly mast height, as well as the going price on them. Oh, and they don''t look too bad either *grin*.

Like JeffH, I''m partial to fractional rigs, but I can live with a masthead and the lack of pointing if there aren''t anyother major negatives.

Thanks again for the input.

Fair winds,
