Nice boat - good buy.....

If you are considering sailing this (and you should) be wary of installing deck fittings that will become snag points for the sheets.

Also (IMHO) the jib boom looks to be very high above the deck - if you can get it down a bit closer to the deck it will sail better as that will lower the CE (centre of effort) reducing the amount of heeling
