I''d be sailing in Barnegat Bay. Would like to be able to haul the boat out by hand over bulkhead. Recreational sailing with my 14yo and 12yo kids. 2 or 3 people at a time. A boat we could enjoy for awhile but not looking to trade up necessarily.
That was appeal of escape. I thought it would be light enough for two to launch/haul out. No maintenance per se. I think I''d rather have a boat a little too technical than a bath tub that''s no fun after a few trips across the bay.
