Family Day-Sailor (in Colorado)

I''m checking back in with some updates. Thanks to all those that have weighed in with their opinions. I went and looked at a J/22 and also met with the kind folks at The Anchorage in Lyons, CO. They turned me on to the Catalina 18 which seems to be a good solution for us. Stable, sails reasonably well, easy single-hander, trailerable. With the mast raising system (and practice) they thought I could have the boat rigged in 30-40 minutes, which doesn''t sound too bad. I''m partial to Catalina''s because my brother lived aboard a Catalina 30 for several years (in Long Beach, CA - just a short trip from Catalina Island).

<p> The 18 is a litte small to spend the night on, but I don''t imagine we''ll do much of this. I''m more interested in just running about for the afternoon.

<p>I understand that slips in Cherry Creek of Chatfield run about $1500 for the season. Does anyone know what the storage yards charge in comparison?
