Allied Mistress questions

I am currently looking at a purchase decision on a 1972 39'' Allied Mistress and I would appreciate any info that could be provided on the pros and cons of this older type boat.(We intend to circumnavigate in 2004.
Thanks.

Nice boats in a lot of ways but this is a 30 year old boat and would probably take a lot of work to put in shape for a circumnav.

Allied Mistress questions

I know of one that may be for sail/sale. Phil, the owner, has done extensive work to her. Great boats with lots of space. P.M. me if you need more information

I know I'm dragging this one out from quite a while ago but...

When seeing the ballast (5000) to displacement (20000) ratio for a Mistress it seems to me they would be very tender, especially with shoal draft.

Can anyone refute that? Or tell me if my thinking is off?

Thanks

Ganderbay:
Is this Allied Mistress the 39' ketch version designed by Arthur Edmunds? What kind of keel does it have - shoal or deep fin? I heard they were very well built boats for their era. Have never sailed one and see very few out in the Pacific Northwest. Must be an East Coast boat. If you care capable of fixing and preparing it for blue water voyages, they good luck.

Also interested

Also considering an Allied Mistress, or Princess. I'm on the west coast, but for the right boat willing to travel.
