Re: Lightnings vs Scots vs Snark vs Sunfish

Hope that you don't mind that I brought this from PM to the main thread. When I tried to respond, I got a message that I didn't have enough posts to send private messages. Go figure!

The sailing center that I refer to is the US Sailing Center, Martin County in Jenson Beach. It is on the east coast of FL where Marco is on the west coast.

I had never heard of a CL, but the pictures look similar to several other one designs out there. Unless the boat takes off and develops a fleet in your area, resale value will be low, just like the other hundreds of orphan one designs that never quite made it. OTOH, boats are, and never were, a good monetary investment. It is enjoyment you are buying and if you like the boat and it suits you, go for it.

Maybe a Sunfish is worth looking into.Thre is a 16' CL that I'm looking at-I don't think they are commone enough for anyone to know. I posted an inquiry and got no responses, and that's a pretty wide audience.
It's a small boat that looks like it would sail well, but I know so little that I was hoping for advice. Thank you for your input, I appreciate it.

Maybe I can come visit your place when I'm in FL this winter. I have parents on Marco, but I get up and down the coast in both directions from there.
Where is your sailing center?
