*shrug* Among 20-21 footers, find me a boat closer to the much-vaunted attributes of a Contessa 32. Not the Flicka; not the Mini 6.5.
BTW, The Wilderness 21 was designed by Chuck Burns and later sold as the Burns 21.
Also BTW: Capt Fred -- Do you own (and are trying to sell) a Rob Roy 23 named Fiddlestix
? A truly pretty craft. But if so, it's good form to disclose to us gentle readers you have a vested interest in recommending we buy one.
bobmcgov, Hi, no I don't own the pretty Rob Roy "Fiddlesticks", but I do know the owner up in Fairhope and hope that boat doesn't leave this area. Mike is ready for a larger boat for his cruising plans and is reluctantly selling his Rob Roy 23. Darn, bobmcgov, you tricked me into almost giving that pretty boat a plug.
Capt.Fred: The designer and single handed builder of the 50' 23 ton cutter ketch y'awl "Daedalus" launched in 1977. The designer and builder of a self charging electric power plant in his Southern Cross 28 "Icarus". Presently outfitting a Rob Roy 23 "biophilia.net" for a return extended cruise up the rivers of Central America. I just want to be closer to the water! Thanks for the query.
