Good evening - first post for me!
I currently live near Lake Norman in NC, and have family who recently purchased a home on the lake. I'd like to find a small sailboat for solo use, as well as with a friend. I've been looking at the typical sunfish, phantoms, and so on, but haven't found much available locally.
A Tanzer 14 came up recently, and I'm curious if anybody here has ever had experience with the 14. It seems there are a few Tanzer 16 owners (and threads) on these forums, but nothing about the smaller sibling. I suspect the two boats share a few things in common, but I don't know to what extent.
Can anybody tell me anything about this boat? I'm a late 20s guy looking for something fun to sail. Would something like this fit the bill? I realize it's quite a bit heavier than a Sunfish. Would it be appreciably slower, even with the much larger sail surface area?
