Re: Ranger 24?

The things I stated are not opinions. It's also not a secret that the Kent Ranger 24 isn't fast. It's something like a 288 PHRF compared to the 198 of the Ranger 26'. Mind you, I like the Ranger 26. If it weren't for the nigh-mare of potential repairs I'd consider one. My boat has nearly no maintenance. I've had her for over three years (in the salt water) and I've just applied a couple coats of teak oil and brushed the bottom every year.

All of that said... most sailboats are exactly the same speed - slow. You can split hairs if you like, but we get there at the same time... give or take 50 seconds. While you are replacing your deck, floor and other ill-designed features I will just sail. Guess who wins that one?
