Re: Anyone here have first hand experience on a Cape Dory Typhoon?

2nd or 3rd hand or just my own observations. I love the look of the CD Typhoon. We had one sail up on us in our Tartan 27' this summer and we got a good look at her under sail. She was keeping up with us on a reach (I think).
I love the rounded ports and the shippy look. Beautiful boat.
But I've never actually sailed on one. They might very well be a bit 'tender' as the Sabreman suggests which only means you need to learn to reef earlier. I'm sure the draft is appropriate for the Bay.
As you were.
