Re: Com-PAC 19 for summer cruiser puget sound

I really love the C-19 and have been tempted to buy one for the lake near my house. It takes a lot of sober discipline not to go there and own two boats. Must resist.........

If you enjoy kayak camping, then by comparison, sleeping aboard the C-19 would be highly desirable. Although, the sky is the limit, when it comes to just how comfortable you want and can afford to be. Here are some things to think about:

Head: porta potty, MSD with holding tank or none?
Fresh Water: Live off bottled like backpacking, onboard tankage, sink, shower?
Power: Do you need/want lights, radios, etc?
Motor: Stictly sail or have alternative? Inboard or outboard?

Your sailing requirements are a bit conflicted. If you want to gunkhole around fairly tame coastal shallows, the C-19 is a great choice. If you want to cruise up the coast, not so much, but it can be done in the right conditions.

As you are likely already learning, there will be trade-offs.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
