    Not first-hand, but from a client who moved up from an original Herreshoff Mfg Co Nereia to a reprocduction Mobjack and a Bounty: Nereia sailes like a witch, is gorgeous to look at, is terrible manoevering in tight places (marinas), can't back down worth a damn, and is cramped below (ref. the famous Herreshoff statement that, "the only time you need standing headroom is when you are lying down.". Did I say it was gorgeous and sailed like a witch?
    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    I think there's one in Fl pretty reasonably priced.
