Re: Can I Take It Into The Ocean?
In light wind a light boat like the J/24 should be the faster one.
But. In. Any. Kind. Of. Chop.
It's like driving a stick shift in stop-n-go traffic. Low mass and a vertical bow will kill ya every time. Especially if you happen to be heading right into it, of course.
Still, they both get folks on the water and into the sport ayt a much lower price point than a Sabre 38.
