Any Good? No, poor sailing, poorly designed, poorly built kit boats.

Drascombe Luggers on the other hand, are very seaworthy little boats... and at least one has crossed oceans...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Thank you Jeff. I backed out of the bidding because the seller hadn't even LOOKED at the sails and therefore could not tell me the condition of them.
And now with your comment...
I was just looking for something to fart around in but I still want it to sail well.

Dennis,

Oday Daysailors, and Rhodes 19's, and Sailstar Explorersare pretty nice boats in that general size and configuration. There seems to be a fair number of them around in cheap but useable condition.

West Wight Potters are also pretty nice little boats in this size range.
