my father inlaw had one in the early 80''s. we sailed the hell out of it, running up and down the Jersey shore. he did have trouble with the centerboard and had it replaced, but aside from that no problems and a fun boat. he sailed it to FL mainly going through the ICW but also did a lot of coastal cruising enroute. a light boat that I wouldn''t loose sight of shore from, but a great general purpose day sailer. I think they were built in RI or New York.
