It is a really TINY boat and you would be had pressed to even take a pee down below NOW if your happy with the Nacra it is not a problem

BUT are your looking for a bit more comfort OR Total performance

Don't confuse the J88s possibility of being place on a trailer with trailering it being remotely practical or even legal with the 9.50' beam and 5000# empty boat weight
Yes i Like to go fast, I hate to be passed on the water.

let me rephrase that
the 88 has a potty room for a cooler both are wife friendly (comfort)

as Far as Trailer just able to get it out of water if i decide and leave it on site. I have no intent on towing it around town and down the road.
I have been looking into prices of storing boat on property, slip fees, dry dock
so on. Still in research mode.

As you see i am totally new to living around water.
So i am learning as i am going.
