My brother had one, sailed on it often, his was a swing keel
and had a soft spot just forward of the keel
trunk on the under side. said it was normal for the boat
because of the weight of the keel. I hear thats the one concern on the boat
If you like, I'll put you in touch with him and you can talk to him yourself..
other than the soft spot, the boat was great, sailed it often and loved the way it handled.
