Re: Johnson 18 weekender

This reply is late but did you buy the Johnson Weekender 18? I've had one for about 10 years and I would be interested in your opinions if you bought it.

There's currently a 1985 Johnson 18 weekender listed for sale in my area but I'm not finding much info available on these boats.

Can anyone tell me; are these boats realitivly stable, self righting boats with a self bailing cockpit? What is their true displacement and do they have a removable ballast? Do they all have a shoal-keel/swing down centerboard configuration similar to the precision 18?

Any info you can provide would be much appreciated. Thanks
