I can't agree w/Captain Chris more. I own a 1974 2 headsail ketch that seems to be the more common sail configuration. She is under going a complete refit due to a serious grounding before I purchased her and hopefully will see the water before much longer. I was so impressed with her when I found her I took on a much larger project than I reall wanted, but haven't regretted it yet. My wife and I have met another Cuttyhunk owner, become very good friends, and sailed several times with him in many sea conditions including an off shore delivery from Maine to Annapolis. My recommendation is if you can find one of these boats for sale buy it. The only common problem I know of is the seal around the dog house (cabin) leaks and may have rotted out some of the plywood sub deck. Check this out and plan a fairly serious repair if it needs to be done. Please let us know if you end up owning one. Oh yeah, mine is not for sale either.
