1979 Lancer 29??

I am considering buying a Lancer 29. I'll be sailing it in the Columbia River and might use it as a live aboard.

I've been sailing an Ericson 27 for the last year and find it a tad small to live on. The v-berth is too small as I am 6' tall.

I won't be racing it, seriously anyways, but will sail it often. At times in a strong current. I'd like to eventually take it off shore and do some harbor hopping.

Any thoughts about doing so in a 1979 Lancer 29??????

I know a guy that sails a Lancer 29 in ventura county, california. He keeps it on a trailer and races it, and it has a very slow PHRF rating for a 29 ft. boat, and that is about how fast it sails. He sails it inshore and what in would probably be considered harbor hopping type distances from shore, and mostly fair weather.. I think that is what it was designed for, I think it is pretty light for anything else. I haven't seen the inside so I can't comment on the roomy-ness etc. I don't think it is a bad boat when used near shore in fair weather, but it is definitly not fast and not built for offshore cruising.
