Re: Ideas on which dinghy/small boat to buy?
I sail a Holder 14 by Hobie. HOLDER 14 sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com
Had that boat for 15 years and love it. Very stable (wide beam) but also fast and fun to sail. Sailed it with my 3 kids all the time. Plenty of room. Easy to rig and launch, no nonsense boat.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
