This is my first boat, bought her last spring after taking sailing lessons the summer before. Very stable and surprisingly easy to single hand by a novice. Nice and roomy inside the cabin since I reconfigured the table.

Sha~bop is a very roomy 23'. She has plenty of room for a couple to cruise for a week or two.
I have found some cracks in the gelcoat around the cockpit, nothing terrible though.
The boat sail fairly well at all points of sail, but heel rather easily in the gusty winds we sail in alot.
When we found this Grampian we had spent about 6 months crawling through a lot of different trailer sailers. She was the best choice based on room inside, construction, and price.
After sailing inland reservoirs for 2 years and Kentucky lake for one season, we are moving to Lake Erie for some different sailing.

Pros:
Cons:

I came upon this boat filled with water, covered in mildew and just neglected. Yet there was a lot of promise in her lines. She is a forgiving design, perfect for the starting sailor, but challenging for a more advanced sailor as well. Roomy, the only drawback is the small cockpit. The cabin is more the size one would find on a 25 footer. The problem, as with many older boats, is the deck. It is made of a fibreglass/balsa core which deteriorates when exposed to water. This necessitates a deck recoring in most G-23's, at least those I have come across. I've been sailing this boat for over a year and she has given the family a great deal of pleasure.
