Cons:

I have been very pleased with the Com Pac 23. It is easy to singlehand, and the shallow draft means that if you run aground you can just jump out, push it off, and jump back in. It is not very fast, but is comfortable and makes a nice weekender for 2 people. The only real gripe I have is the weather helm, which is considerable.

Pros: Perfect
Cons:

I was content with my Com-Pac 19 and not looking for a new boat but when I saw the Com-Pac 23 for such a cheap price I had to check her out. Soon I was the proud owner of two Com-Pac's why sell the 19 when you have room for both boats at the pier The 23 is a wonderful daysail/weekender for my wife son and I. The cockpit fits us fine, the berths below are fine for a few nights. The head arrangements; porta-pot under V-berth with drop down privacy curtian is as good as can be expected on a 23' boat. The cabin is cozy on a cool fall night, with a small table to eat and play cards at it makes for an enjoyable overnight.

The 23 is built well in all respects (no wood core decks here) the only things that need attention are the plate aluminum rudder and the slop that can develop in the rudder bracket bolt holes (not gudgeons and pintles). The rudder is an easy fix, buy a idasailor foil rudder, well worth the price in the amount weather helm is reduced. The slop in the ruder fix is as easy as sleeving the holes with the plastic life-line covering or as complex as having bronze sleeves pressed in.

Performance wise, she does well on all points but is not the best going to weather due to shallow draft (better now with the idasail rudder). She has enough weight and v forward to take on a decent chop and power boat wakes without pounding or loosing much speed. She tacks' well enough but is a bit slow on acceleration.

Truly a low maintenance boat, no thru hulls, no waterlogged deck core worries, no leaks, never had so much as a drop of water in the bilge ans she has been in the water for two years straight except for spring haul for paint.

If you think you may want one, go for it you wont be dissapointed.
