Not a high speed boat by any means, but reasonably seaworthy.
Biggest drawbacks I see to it are:
- non-lead keel in some model years
- lack of weather deck in cockpit to prevent flooding down below in the event of being pooped.
- storage space for offshore travel is a bit cramped.

There were more than 600 made. Designed by Paul Coble, the only civilian boat he is responsible for... he moved on to work on military warships from there.
