Pros: 1985 model, Good in Lightwinds and very strong hull with centerboard that draws 6.5 feet up 11 feet down. Entry to Cabin through deck. Comfortable v berth and aft berth
Cons: 1st Reef Main in 18 knots of true wind with a 120% genoa

Good sailing vessel on all points of sail with oversized standing rigging and mast. Deck flat and wide and easy to walk on. Saloon and two heads are good size with sufficient stowaway lockers. Too many winches in deck (6) plus 4 for jib or spinaker sheets. Running checkstays too much of a hassle. Cockpit is small considering boat size. Need to reef early, but once is properly reefed comfortable and fast ride. In heavy chop is well mannered.
