Re: Buying our first sailboat

Ian,

I had the same scenario. Had a 19' powerboat. We have an old sunfish we loved too. The Sunfish you can throw on the roof or in the bed and its a good little boat. I wanted to move up.

Sailboats require a little more. It hard to find the perfect size. Anything big enough to be stable needs a trailer at least. Then setup is a pain. Came to the conclusion that I'd rather have a boat worth putting everyone on. Got a Cat22 on a trailer. Its perfect for us.

YMMV
