'87 here (#80). I suppose one could live aboard indefinately; with water stops as mentioned above. Two with a mild climate (no heavy clothes and lots of time in the cockpit). I've known bachelors who live year-round aboard smaller vessels - but you'd have to keep pretty spartan tastes and few hobbies.

We use ours as a lake daysailor and it excels at that. I wouldn't hesitate to take her coastal provided the rig is well inspected. Getting on 21 years for any remaining original equipment.

On the whole she's rugged, somewhat tender but has a good motion (she does not bob, slap or root like many "European" recent 30 to 36 foot designs) and is very well laid-out for livability. Very wide side-decks reduce the cabin volume but sure make sailing and fishing at anchor a better experience. Seems to have very good ventillation and is relatively light and cheery inside. Loading her up for a live-aboard would probably make a big difference in the tenderness as she'd be squatted on her lines.

Put your finger over the spout to help draw the prime. I added 2" of aluminum tube sleeved with a length of 3/8" silicone tubing to the spout so the spray stays in the sink.

Great feature to put the ice melt to use for misc. water needs.

Cjli - Any canvas shop should be able to help you with the dodger. You can get most or all hardware parts from Sailrite.
