They are a neat boat, and a performer too - I'll go out on a limb and say that Jeff H might even approve!

But I'll also venture that the cockpit is not that short-crew friendly with a cross-cockpit traveler, runner winches aft and sheet winches well forward and inboard to boot.

The other odd thing... in the pictures the layout/furniture etc looks great... in person it's all 3/4 height so it's kind of like trying to live in "dollhouse" - not that extreme, of course, but galley counters and nav cabinet, etc are lower than standard. (at least in the one we've been aboard.. this one looks the same to me) Coupled with limited headroom it's not the most comfortable cruiser - though it was never meant to be one, anyway.....
