She wants a mono hull, I agree with her.
What a change of perspective from a C320 to a Fun Little Boat

After a lot of looking we are considering the J70

They appear to have a lot of room for the 3 of us (Wife, 12 year old and myself) considering it is 23 foot boot.

Does any one have any Input of the J boat ( J 70)
I would love to hear what you think of it

We also talked about the possibility of spending a lot of Father son time day sailing her. We think this is a boat he would enjoy sailing as he get older.

We are still pondering it and about concluded, this may be a "For NOW" boat that we keep and buy a 34+ "IT" boat in a few years
This boat is going to be the next big thing in one design. It is really catching on. The reviews are great. By the time you are ready to sell there will be a big market for used ones. I think it's a great idea.
