Re: Falmouth Cutter 22 vs Allegra 24
I'd choose the Falmouth simply because I love their looks. I think the Allegra has a much more spacious interior though so if you plan on spending a lot of time living on board it's probably the better choice.
As for sailing qualities and so forth, I imagine it's pretty much a wash. Both are reputed to be extremely sturdy boats, suitable for "minimum" offshore sailing.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
