I whole-heartedly support Caltex's suggestions. You'll learn a lot in a shorter amount of time.

I owned a 1981 model from '81-'88. Enjoyed the boat. What do you want to know. Daddyo on this site also owned one.

None from me. How do you and your family like cruising and living on that configuration?

Did you find it to be comfortable with a family? I like the openness of the bridge up top. How economical was it with the Lehman 120? How many knots would you say it would push?

Without the generator it would cruise about 7 knots at 1.5 gal/hr. With a 3 KW generator it would do about 2 gal/hr. At the time our 2 sons were teenagers, and we found it comfortable. During the day they were usually out in our Boston Whaler burning my gas. It was a pleasant boat at dock or at anchor.
