Thank you all for all your input, we appreciate it. We havn''t made a firm decision as to which boat, even IF we are going to buy the Westerly or not. We are first time sailboat buyers and will be first time sailors. We are currently enrolled in the Canadian Power and Sail squadron course ( starting soon) and will no doubt need lots of lessons when we actually acquire our sailboat!
We are interested in the Westerly as we have small children and would like something more stable than fast.
I hope we can make a decision in the next few months as to what we are going to buy....but the looking is a lot of fun too!!
