Well, I have discovered that 74-76 models are glued much better. Så I discovered a 76 model with a broken maststep. Then cut the maststep from this one, inserted and this gave me less trouble with things that are difficult to fix. Next level, I will fix the support wood under the cockpit floor.
Buy a Harken kicker and a MK2 sail for your own. Maybe a stiff mainsail sheet. Then you start working. It's like riding a bike. If you loose focus, you fail. It's an "all-in" boat. And the reward is much .
Do all boats have cubitainers? I have a 76 and a 97mod without. I also have a 75? , a 79 and an 80, a 2005 with..... I know 6boats are too much. I have to sell. But I got them for "an offer I could not resist."
