joel,

Jeff's comments track very well with my recollections of this model.

Whatever you do, don't underestimate either the amount of work or the $$$ required to fully restore such a boat, especially one which hasn't been well cared for.

And, even if the boat were in first class condition, she's not much of a sailor. Beautiful, maybe, but not a good performer.

You can find many other boats around which will require less work and, once restored, will be much better performers.

Bottom line: this is one I'd pass on, even if she were for free.

Bill
