Can anyone tell me about these boats sailing, rowing, and towing abilities? I think I might be able to buy one for a good price. The problem is, it was stored in the owner's garage for years, and has been stored in a heated and air conditioned building for the last year. I would have someone familiar with traditional boat building give it a look before I bought it. It needs a paint job and the seams have opened up a bit. I think it would be a fun restoration project. It's about 12-13' I think.
Other than performance abilities, what options do I have if I don't want to keep the boat in the water? Is it best to keep a small carvel hull like this in the water all the time?
I ask about sailing ability because I read somewhere these boats are tender.
