Does anyone have experience with American Sail Pennant or Catalina 12.5?

I have an American 14.6 if that helps at all.

Re: small daysailers

I have considered that boat as well, but I will be mostly sailing solo, so not sure it would be appropriate for that.

I have read lots of people sail them single handed. The only tough part would be raising and lowering sails I think. The good thing about the 14.6 is she's very stable and roomy. If you decide to take a friend or two with you there is plenty of room. My wife often lays down on the seat and suns while I sail. Plenty of room for tunes and a cooler as well. You can always add a tiller extension to help with solo sailing too. Great little boat for me so far.
