Cutter to sloop
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.
