Pretty good designer and builder. The boarding platform and self-tacking jib are Big plusses.

As long as it surveys out well for the asking price, I would say Go for it! I have seen this boat up close, and, to me, it looks better than it does in pictures.

And, as to general look, well, maybe not as pretty as some, but that really is 100% subjective.

(Our own boat's design is more from the "form follows function" end of the spectrum, but she is very fast and we like her looks just fine -- including when rowing away!)
