This is something I have to say.
I hear sooo many opinions of the sloop vs cutter question but always wonder if the person with the opinion ever owned a cutter.
Many times I doubt they''ve ever been on one.
But they sure seem to be experts.
If you have a genuine interest please do yourself a favor and beg some crew time on a cutter. Sail the darn thing and don''t listen to opinions other than those of people that have actually owned one.
They''re great rigs
with easy to handle sails.
Self tending rigs
are a joy to single hand if that''s the rig
you like etc.
And please avoid the wind bags other than the spinnaker
variety. Make an informed decision.
