I sailed one for many years.
My experience; a very sturdy pocket cruiser.
she will take a blow with the best of them. Strong and solid.
She is on the heavy side for a 25 footer, so I found light air performance to be a bit lacking. Some have been raced, but I have no idea how well, we cruised and day sailed on ours.
You might want to check and re-bed the chain-plates where they pass through the deck and tie into the bulk head, this can be a source of leaks and the bulk head might rot if not kept up with.
Best of luck with her and welcome.

Well they were mid seventies vintage boats, some work is to be expected.
You'll bring her back to life, I am sure of it.
I am a Great Lakes sailor. Southern end, originally from Chicago we now sail out of Holland, MI. Great sailing here, except our season is about 6 months, than we have this thing here called winter. Almost out if it now.
Again, good luck with her. You have a great (under appreiciated) boat there.
