Re: Com-PAC 19 for summer cruiser puget sound
The compac 19 is a terrific trailerable. It's tough, and stable, and very seaworthy for it's size. Short trips of 1 or 2 overnighters are probably fine. Getting pinned in a blow, maybe not so much. A Cork is 100% buoyant, but you wouldn't want to bob on it in a 3-5 foot seas. But for a gunk-holer the C19 is a great choice.
Hull #68 S2 7.9 on our little landlocked puddle, Lake Wallenpaupack, PA, it's cheap, trailerable, and paid for.
