And there was a nice guy who showed up and dragged us to shore so we could bail... re-affirming my belief in mankind.

I think the smaller the boat, the more likely you will see it under sail.
possibly so. i love my holiday 20 but, i have sailed my 9' dinnghy 95% more. of course, a part of that is transportation to the water. for a part of the time i owned the holiday, which is a trailer sailer, i had no way to pull a trailer. but, even when i did, it was easier to get the dinghy out on the water. not that i don't love my dinghy ( my girlfriend loves my dingy, to, but that's a different spelling ). i do. it's an awesome handling boat. really fun to sail. but access makes the difference. i hope that it will be far easier to get to sail my cal. it's already on the water. no trailer. no mast raising. no rigging. no launch or retrieval. and it's only 15 min from my girlfriend's house. the holiday is around an hour from lake marburg and from the bay. plus, i can sleep on the cal and don't have to leave it by dark ( you'd get locked in at marburg if you weren't out by dark. happened to me. i'm not good at leaving the water.).
