Rhodes Ranger vs Cal 27 t/2
Jeff - politely stated!! The Kent Ranger may have a swing keel which would make trailering feasible.
ME262 - Suggest you keep your eyes peeled for boats "stranded" in Central America. A lot of good deals can be had on boats that have sailed from the North and their owners, for one reason or another are no longer interested in moving on.
In either of these two boats, it would be a long and painful journey down the left coast, for sure. IMHO either boat could be prepared, but the skipper would be sorely abused????
