i learned how to sail on the 24' buccaneer that sat in my dads front yard when i was a kid. I'm surprised i ever got into sailing after starting out on that schenanigans. it's only redeeming quality was the kenyen mast system.
I remember during one daysail half the rudder sheared right off... top to bottom, exactly half gone.
and, imo... they're ugly. looked and sailed like a bathtub.
