Crealock vs. Tayana, vs. Cabo Rico
I have a 83 Crealock. It had significant hull blistering when it was pullled out for survey. Make sure you get a sinificant discount if you decide on the Crealock if blistered.
I disagree on the Crealock being slow. I sail the Chesapeake and it doesn't take a lot of wind to get the boat going. Alas I have a Yawl.
The one disadvantage of the Crealock would be storage space.
There are Crealocks out there circumnavigating.
