I don't know the boat by that name. I raced a Heritage as noted above for many years on Lake Erie. There are several of these boats being cruised as passagemakers and several still racing very competively on Lake Erie. Two could easily sail one cruising style. It takes four to race light air and 6 to 8 in higher wind. Its a very stiff rig and goes well to windward. It could easily be made into a cutter rig with two roller furlers for short hand sailing. I really like the boat. Be sure the condition of the hull regarding blisters. We did a blister job on the race boat and they were the right vintage for the problem. As long as its only gel-coat it is easily fixed. Stomp the decks. We ahd no problems and I know of none of the others that had soft deck troubles. I think they were well made. Check the photos in the gallery I noted above. Most people I know who have sailed the Heritage really like it.
