Re: Looking to buy C21-many keel questions
I can't help but get in on this conversation...I went back and forth with what I wanted in sailboat and ended up buying the cal21 without any research (go figure) because it was the "right" price. If you are looking for a boat you can easily launch then a swing keel boat is pretty ideal. Obviously both have their benefits. If you have been reading my threads you can see that we ended up doing a lot more work on the boat than I ever intended but this is a great boat and price to learn lessons on.
I have yet to use the plug with my boat. We have a cover that keeps the water at your feet to a minimum...this project is somewhere down on the list.
The trailer is also very important too. We bought a newer trailer for almost the same price as the boat.
