Re: What can you tell me about Watkins

Years ago I sailed a Seawolf 30 (Watkins) in the Bahamas. With the full keel and short draft, it did not point very well. It tacked through about 120 degrees. The main on this boat was unbattened which also did not help.

For two people it was quite comfortable. We slept in the v berth.
