I still think the lines are very nice for a full keel 18 Footer.
Totally agree, beautiful lines! That's why I drove to look at them. If the weekender was stepped on the cabin top I'd own one. I want pleasure to look at, decent sailing, and
ease of use.
I ended up filling that size need with a Victoria 18, a bit smaller, not as nice a keel, but a snap to lower and raise the mast and trailer.
