I don't like redundant threads as much as the next guy, but in need of pretty specific information.
My dad and I are looking at going half-in on a small trailerable sailboat. I live in Vancouver, Canada, he is in inland WA state. We thought of getting something we could keep at a marina, say in Everett, during the sailing season.
Neither of us has much boating experience, so a forgiving boat would be preferred. Key is that it have a larger cockpit than an equal sized cruiser. Probably will be used for day outings and perhaps tow to other parts of the region....hence the swing keel. A small cuddy with room for two would be nice, definitely room for a portable head.
I'm thinking Tanzer, Catalina or early MacGregors would fit the bill, but are these not more cruisers? Suggestions welcome. My dad is eager to spend money, but I'd rather step back and do some research.
Take a look at the San Juan 23. Exactly what your looking for. had many trips to the San Juans, Gulf Islands and Puget Sound in this little gem....Heck, I even lived aboard for 6 months, before I got the big boat...
