Re: Paceship PY23 thoughts/opinions
Paceship are a good boat, some the older models were built in Nova Scotia up here on Canada's east coast. There is one that is moored next to us at the marina though a 24footer, not a boat I would consider a trailerable boat, firstly I was present when the owners first put it in the water, they had a heck of a time getting it off the trailer, with the tide going out they had to get one of the local fisherman to assist and pull it off the trailer. Secondly, their boat weighs about 4500lbs, and now they have the boat craned in every spring and the same in the fall.
Have you considered an ODay or a Macgregor etc, as they are true trailer sailers. I have a Mac 25 with a swing keel, works great for me, tow it to the harbour were we keep her push it off the trailer step the mast put on the mainsail and we are away. Simply put, some thing to consider.
Good luck with the search, and keep us posted.
