Reputable firm, solid boats. Easy to fix. Just get one in good shape. You'll have to hunt around as often (correct me if I'm mistaken) interiors were custom jobs. Commonly rigged as Ketch

I've been on a few and all were quite comfortable, and worked great as "charters" as they have TONS of space. And don't be thrown off by the ferro
issue- they're pro built and solid as anything else (as long as you don't do the things that sink boats).
ditto the comments above on watertight bulkheads -they work on dinghies but not much else.
