compac fan

I realize that this thread is a little outdated, but I'm going to dredge it up anyway because I'm a Compac fan. My dad had a Compac 16 while I was growing up. Beamy, stable little tub. One time the entire family of 5 went out for a rip-roaring sail after a front blew through. If I decide to pick up a trailer sailer instead of a small liveaboard, the Compac Suncat 17 is my top choice. Classic lines. The rigging system looks incredibly easy and I even found footage of a guy sailing the catboat rigged with what appears to be a small jib:
