Hi I'm looking at buying
an Allen Mummery Marimba 24 to learn on with my daughter. I have some experience on catamarans but not much on a mono, more motoring than sailing. The boat
has an in board and pretty comprehensive sail wardrobe and has been well maintained, it really is the complete package as far as this size boat
goes. The elderly owner has certainly done some miles on her. I'm just asking is this a good design and a forgiving boat as far as novice
sailors go. I'm joining my local yacht club which has a great reputation but I'd just like to throw it out there and see what you all have to say.
