Re: Time to Downsize

I know this is challenging, that is why I brought the quandry to the sailnet community. Once we get the Pearson sold we will have our actual budget so that will help narrow down the options.

The Hobie will happen again in a few years when the kid is older.

I saw a BW Harpoon and liked the looks of it very much and am trying to get a sail on it. It is not for sale as far as I know, but I will look around for other ones.

As mentioned before, I am not the biggest fan of Flying Scots, but I have not sailed on one for several years. If I run across one I will go for a sail and re-evaluate.

The WWP looks like a nice boat, however it does not meet our current mission. I would really like the cockpit space of a day sailer. When we are ready to have a cabin again we will be living on the East Coast and can get back into another 30-ish keel boat.
