I've sailed on that boat about 1/2 dozen times, including one offshore run from Montauk to Cape May. It's a very nice boat, reasonable construction, nice motion, good space and volume, and good storage. Not the fastest or most weatherly boat, but far from the slowest either.
The one thing I'll point out is a problem my friend had with his davits. The stern and deck at the transom wasn't strong enough for the load, and there was a lot of flexing going on. My friend had to have the davits removed, and have the area built up a bit. He wasn't using a large dink and motor either, so clearly the deck area just wasn't up to the task. That's all to say that if you are going to put davits or other similar equipment back there, be sure to inspect it carefully and plan to build up the area a little.
In any event, it's a very nice boat that served our friends quite well, so congratulations and enjoy her.
