My father has one, he's had it forever. Sails like a dream, very responsive and solid as a rock. The interior is beautiful wood and Dutch tile. He just had it repowered last year, put a Yanmar in to replace the old Volvo. The only problem I recall is that the traveler in the cockpit ripped out one day, can't remember what caused it, but it was a simple repair. Very nice boat, comfortable and it's done well in the club races. Dad sails it single handed most of the time. He's 87 and he loves that boat.
