Re: Time to Downsize

Nick,

you have a challenging set of requirements.

I kn9ow one boat that meets them all, look hard and find one of these:

Boston Whaler Harpoon Sailboats

The Harpoon is a very stable but excellent performing boat, I sailed one while my my family was young, we comfortably carried four adults and a bunch of kids and everyone had elbow room. The boat has so much form stability, I am not sure what it would take to turn one over, but I sailed it in all kinds of weather up to 30 knots and never felt uncomfortable...and in open water.

Read the writeup...find one and you wont be disappointed.
