Skookum 34

That is one wildly overweight,grossly underballasted boat. Without knowing much more than the numbers, this sounds like a boat that would be useless as a sailboat in light air and terrible in heavier conditions as a result of its poor stability (shallow draft, narrow beam, and tiny ballast ratio) vs its high drag.
