Re: Choosing a small sailboat

Still waiting for pictures or a link to your Slipper on

Small-ish boats tend to be very responsive to the helm so it is not surprising you found that it turns quickly.

To chase down the source of that leak:
get someone to come sailing with you
have them sail the boat on BOTH a port & starboard tack while
you are below looking for the source of the water.
Ya' can't fix it if you don't know where the water is coming from.
