TDMModels is on a distinguished road
I learned to sail on a Hunter 140. Had it for two years before selling to buy
a larger boat. I thought the 140 was a great little boat. Plenty of thrills if you
wanted them. The wide beam and "dryness" of the boat made it comfortable for a 14 footer. In a 12 knot wind the craft would really scoot and get up to over 6 knots. I am not familiar with a Cape Cod Mercury. But you would enjoy a 140. I had never sailed any boat before and learned with a book and just doing it.
