I spent about one year sorting out the best suited racer/cruiser specially suited for San Francisco Bay.
This particular model is fin keel, this means that you can head up into the wind as much as 30 degrees off wind.
Its keel-stepped mast and a full range of instruments makes it suitable for ocean coastal cruising.
The trusty Oberdorfer Raw water pump seals can be replaced easily of they start to leak. Part number is 11691, available from http://www.pumpsandpartsonline.com for $ 50.00 ( 2016)
The seals include upper and the lower seals plus the middle cylindrical seal.
