Thoughts on the Precision 23

I have been looking and researching many different kinds of boats, from daysailers to pocket cruisers up to 26 feet in length. One that has caught my attention is the Precision 23. It is a trailerable pocket cruiser, weighing 2495 lbs dry. With trailer and 500lbs of gear, could weigh in at 4000 lbs, within reach of a mid-size SUV or truck.

Reviews that I have read state that mast stepping can be done by one person (better with two people) in less than 30 minutes, and launching and retrieval are relatively easy.

Does anyone on these boards have any experience, or knowledge of the Precision 23, and what would you see as its strengths and weaknesses. Is this a good boat for weekend cruising?

Thanks in advance.

You could do a lot worse than a Precision 23. They are well built and well laid out pocket cruisers. And don't forget to check the boat reviews.
