Looking at a Grampian 28 as my first great lakes sailboat. Anyone have experience?

She's in good shape, has wheel and autopilot, spinnaker, furling, gps, and the price is right. I have sailed the G26, but wondering about the 28's handling. Any advice would be most welcome!

Handling of the 28 is far superior to any other Grampian. The molds were bought by Cape Dory and marketed as the Intrepid 28 after Grampian folded.

Thanks Jim! she has a 24.5 waterline, so she should move sprightly - I hope!
