Pros:
Cons:

entry level protected water "first" boat. very light and quick, easily trailered and launched. original hardware is very minimal, very crude. swing keel trunk intrudes into cabin area too much, but leaves draft of 12". after I upgraded all hardware and put a reef in the main, the boat is very enjoyable to sail in breezes up to 25 kts. the boat is very well built, initially tender but firm when the rail gets close to the water. production ceased in 1976 to the best of my knowledge.

Cons:

This Clipper is a "honey" to sail. Weak points are anchoring the swing keel as it bumps if left down at mooring. The cockpit is small, but great for a day sailer. We went to California and the company is gone. Are there other CM's on Lake Michigan?

Pros: good sailer, easy set-up, raise mast 1-2 people, good design almost can't be knocked down, will turn into wind, keel up 10"-12" draft
Cons: keel trunk intrudes into cabin too much, swing keel maintainance must be keep up, cable, etc has v-berth never used, quarter berths unusable except by kids,

Think ours is a 1975 model. Good support on line for common problems. Mostly because we are sailing 30 year old boats. Company went out late seventies. 21 is a good day sailer with sleeping capacity. Easy to rig and tow. Have rigged up, sailed, tore down same day many times. As always, nicer if you don't have to. Biggest problem is swing keel. Cables wear out and can cause damage if it falls. Just have to inspect yearly. Many boats have similar design. The good is you can float in 6" of water to land in different spots. Modern boats would probably have electric winch. With this old a boat some woodwork and repairs will probably always be needed.
