I have a fiberglass Gulfstream. Like a couple of others I was thinking of it's plastic twin the Scirocco when a used one came along. For me its strongest point is neutral steering. I've been in 30+ knot wind and can steer any direction without the bow getting pushed either to wind or lee.
I get some leaks in the for and aft hatches, between the ring and hull. My guess is it's just time for new gaskets. It can be hard to turn until you put it on edge, more than just a little. If I lean it until the cockpit rim is just about in the water it will spin on a dime.
For day tripping I might like something a bit narrower and lower, but as others said, if you can only have one, this is a good one.
