I have also been asking around for info on what size genoa to add to my '84 and what kind of tracks others have used.

Our plan is to upgrade Puppy Luff (a little) while we play and learn some more this summer. Next year we plan on getting into something in the 19 - 26' range that we can weekend in. Compac, O'Day, Catalina ... It sure is hard not to buy one right away. The economy is creating all kinds of bargains in trailerable boats. Seems my wife thinks I should sell the two extra Jeeps, Buick Century, and two powerboats before I buy another sailboat. How unreasonable is that! I suggested I just build another garage.
Didn't mean to offend. By tub, just meant beamy and stable. Those Compacs can take some serious weather for their size.
