ConditionThe current owner purchased in 2000 and began the 5-10 year process the restore the boat. (Fuel economy is 1 gal/hr motoring.)

Per the boat's owner, "I've had her at 8.5kts in a 25k nor-easter in the GTulf of Mexico w/ reefed main and working jib at 4-5' - seas on the beam - and we did just fine!
