Watkins 29

Thanks tsenator, that''s the kind of info I was looking for. Have looked at the S2''s also. For the kind of cruising I intend, I do like the underbody of the Watkins, particularly, the skeg hung rudder, as the occasional grounding is to be expected.

As I will be retired, sheer performance is only a concern due to weather, not the need to be somewhere by a specific date. My main concern is a solid, roomy boat that sails decently and your comments seem to indicate the Watkins fits that. With your comments in the previous thread about it''s stability in heavy weather, it seems like a good choice to keep an eye out for. Thanks again.

Fair winds,
John
