imagine2frolic Sailed on one for 17 years as owner. Single-handed her from S.F. Ca to Cabo, and over to P.V. Mexico with a friend, and back to Cabo. I just about wore out S.F. Bay herself with all the miles I sailed her there.

I lived on the boat alone for nearly a decade. Was roomy for 2 when love was in the air. Not roomy enough when argueing though. She was a shoal draft, and sailed straight as an arrow down the face of 20ft. waves rounding Point Conception with the tiller pilot on.

She did crack the liner on the floor while dropping off the face of some 15ft. steep waves for 18 hours. Some plywood, epoxy, and paint did her right though. Strong, and capable is how I would describe her......i2f

Faster Sailed on one that had, at some point, been to Mexico and back to the PNW. Found it to be a solid feeling boat, no rocketship but seemed comfortable in a reasonable breeze.

Good headroom and reasonable accommodation though as I recall the galley was a bit minimal (at least on that one) They probably go for a relatively low price for that size of boat.

And, of course, Survey, survey, survey......
