Works great makes a fine efficient cruiser , TILL its sales time and most folks are dockside most of the time and prefer a Roomaran.

Remember the very fine one for sale on this site.Winny the Poo.

Took almost 2 years to find a understanding purchaser, that wanted efficiency not just volume.
efficiency aside,
the reason "Poo" took so long to sell was is was a cobbled together/homemade looking boat. Most don't want a boat that look like is was assembled in someones back yard.
