Paceship Northwind 29

I owned a paceship eastwind 24 and I am familiar with the 29 as the design is similar. The eastwind was the nicest sailing boat I have ever had the pleasure of sailing and many who sailed with me aboard my 24 made that comment. That said, it did have drawbacks. The design tender - though not dangerously so - just be ready to spend time walking at a steep angle. Weather helm may make auto pilots finicky.

i had my Eastwind for 14 years and extensively cruised L Michigan. It was a great boat!
