Pros: Very shoal long keel is great for Keys & Bahamas
Cons:

The Commodore T-26 is an excellent boat for it's intended use. It is a maxi trailerable keel boat designed by Alan Payne of America's Cup fame. The boat was originally designed as the Columbia T-26 and Commodore Yachts later bought the mold, upgraded the interior and changed the rig from masthead to fractional. The foil shaped shoal keel is only 25" deep but the ballast is in the lower several inches and if sailed relatively flat the boat performs better than one might expect. She is very fast on a reach and a run. I have been sailing the Keys and Bahamas for 35 years and this pocket cruiser is perfect for these cruising grounds. The quality of construction is excellent. My boat is a 1983 and I have cob webs in the shallow bilge. In the past two years since purchasing the boat I have made and continue to make upgrades. I bought the boat explicitely for the ability to trailer it to sailing areas around the country and still have a vessel capable of handling most coastal conditions. I have owned about 6 pocket cruisers under 30 ft and for it's intended use this is the best boat I have had to date.

Am very excited about my new venture. My commodore 26 was a gift from my uncle who took me sailing in it about 5 years ago in tampa. I am in the prosess of building a trailer and going from MN. to FL. to get it. the boat is in excellent shape and has some extras. I am wondering about the stability in good winds on some of the big lakes here in MN. with such a shallow draft. I plan on making her look better than new and could use any and all info. on her sailing capabilities. Should have it in about 2 to 3 weeks. I currently sail a redone rare 1968 spindrift 17. so what a change.

I just inherited a Commodore 26, looking for specifications. I see some in the thread, but looking for the rest. Does anyone have a spec sheet? I guess a brochure would be too much to hope for. BTW, this boat is in very good condition, and is for sale (currently on Kentucky Lake)
