What is your current boat ?
This is my father's Cal 34, I've been sailing with him for 6 year now and I will soon join the Canadian Forces and I need
a sailboat... I also bought my self a nordica 16 a few year ago ( i know i know, but I was working part time at mc Donald's after school hours
) and I'm sick and tired of sailing a very small sailboat without a self baling cockpit... after all, i'm used to sail a 34 footer.
I confess I have never been a fan of Roberts.
I never really like the Roberts either, I like narrow, low free board sailboat way better.
Can I ask you why you wouldn't go back to a full keel?
If I end up without a full keel, I you have some thing like a Contessa 32, I think they're great boat.
