blt2ski will become famous soon enough
A fellow at my marina has had one for over 20 maybe 25 yrs. They are fairly quick for there size, stable as I understand it. You can find them with wood frame/plywood, and a few all fiberglass. Their are quite a few that still meet and race 1D in the area. Do not quote me, may be more int he seattle area than up north. Everett has a few also.

Certainly one to put on a short list if you are looking for a mid 20' boat. It is going to be one of the faster 25'rs. Altho probably not the most comfy of them.

I believe at 48° North - The Sailing Magazine there is a back article online for the 50 yr anniversary in Gig Harbor Wa where hull #1 was put into a museum or equal.
