The Puffer is a 13 ft. fractional sloop with very low freeboard. I'd like responses from sailors with experience sailing one. I'm sure they can ship water easily if not sailed flat. If they swamp do you bail first and then climb aboard?

I am pleased to find another owner, I sailed one as a kid in lake MI about 20 years ago and now sail one on a small inland lake I was lucky enough to find floating in the water when we bought the house. Parts and other owners are hard to find. Never swamped one, but I find it sails well in light to moderate winds, not enough in the water for higher winds just gets blown direction of the Wind
