The did two versions of it; the daysailer and the weekender.

I've looked at both of them for sale around here in Maine. IIRC, the daysailer is NOT self bailing, any rain or sea water has to be pumped out. I'd never get one. They both look like they would sail nicely.

Be aware that the weekender (again, if I recall correctly) has the mast stepped in front of the cabin, so it would have to be lowered forward where there is not much length and very narrow.

Both have tiny dark cabins. They do have full keels and look quite stable.

Edit, Correction: I was looking at "Sea Sprites", not "Typhoons". See my correction with links a few posts down.
