I used this boat as a warm weather live aboard near Bangor plus cruised her around Penobscot Bay and beyond, and now am working locally so I no longer need her.
She is 37 years old, she's not perfect, has one small deck area which needs injection (easy and not really required which is why I didn't bother), but she sails and motors very well for her size-24 feet on deck but 9 feet wide- shes a big boat, make no mistake...
She easily breaks 6 knots sailing and is incredibly stable for her size. Her designer, Eldredge McGinnis, designed coast guard cutters and it shows in her sea keeping ability.
