Watkins 25 Information

After considerable research while shopping for a shallow draft (learner) boat, I have ruled out most of the prefab trailerables (Hunter 260, Catalina 250, etc). The reason that I have ruled these out are the inherent problems with water ballast and swinging mechanisms. I am strongly considering a Watkins 25 with the shallow fixed keel. I like the roominess of the boat. I know that it will not sail well into the wind, but that is a negligible problem for me. Doeas anyone have any other positive or negative input regarding the Watkins 25?
