Re: Ranger 24?

The KR24 has a core-less solid fiberglass deck? That is very unusual and would make it quite heavy.

Most sailboats (especially smaller cruisery ones like this) on the water have solid fiberglass hulls. That isn't unusual at all.

I've never sailed a KR24, but there used to be one next to me in a marina. The engine compartment seemed like it had some major downsides: it takes a lot of space on an already small boat and you can't kick the engine up out of the water as easily for improved sailing performance.

They aren't uncommon around Seattle, there are quite a few listed per year on Craigslist and I've seen them in Duck Dodge and at local marinas.

I'm no longer participating on SailNet.
