Re: Galilee 15

My accessment has not changed in 11 years. I have not sailed one and barely even seen one since. In a slight coincidence, I had an intern architect who worked for me whose uncle built the Galilee. The molds still existed and at one point Jonah (that really was his name) was thinking of building one for himself.

The only thing I would say is that it was a ideosyncratic design and has some interesting and perhaps appealing features and some odd less understandable features.

There are a lot of neat daysailors out there many of which are simply better boats in a very general sense. There does not seem to be a following for these boats.To buy a used Galilee today, the price would need to be very cheap, and her design well suited to where and how you plan to sail.
