Running downwind is a delight, it's why I fought my Bearing Sea mentor, and he had to get a video to convince me, down wind, down swell is the most unstable course. (it's also the nicest, and all the description you gave it.

That's true for a planing hull in relatively calm [e.g. equally spaced duration and parallel] following sea gentle-swells.

Then there is this:

Confused following sea conditions; strong current and high wind.

Any boat has its limit where things will get sketchy and the typical technique isn't going to work.

You know I’ve probably watched that video a half dozen times in past years and I just now noticed that the one in the lead has a batwing deployed, and seems to be able to avoid swapping ends much better than the vessel behind it.

Personally, I learned my lesson on my N46. Just maintaining the rail cap was enough to decide to employ a professional.

If you are looking for mild project boat, worthy of a look.

Not sure but looks like an early glass boat... Waay better without that fly bridge and mast. Was probably a commercial boat. Not sure if there is a deal here or not..

Cold lam construction?? Some exploratory hand laminate fiberglass was happening back in early 60's.

I agree the mast appears unnecessary... not ample sail area... maybe makes it a bit more tippy.

And, she is a pretty design pre fly bridge; probably more sea worthy too.

However... I simply love to pilot from the bridge. Wonder if that skinny bridge can seat two?? Cozy!

All n' all - I kinda like that boat!
