update on the typhoon

Dear All,
We just got back from visiting the Typhoon and the owner kindly offered a sea trial. All I can say is that the Typhoon carves the water like a knife. Wow!! The boss had the helm and we smiled from one end of the bay to the other. The Typhoon remains a viable option (will be moored and not trailered extensively). We will try to see the Capri 18 next weekend... However, it is on the hard about 40 miles inland. I imagine that a sea trial is out except as part of an offer (i.e., an offer contigent on a satisfactory sea trial)?
Anyway, I have heard your advice about these choices and appreciate your expertise. (The boss and I are newbies, having only completed ASA101 last summer). I will post again after visiting the Capri 18.
Regards,
Glen

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Judging by both their reactions, I have to agree.

We Did It!!

We visited the Capri 18 and loved it. Very roomy cockpit and serviceable cabin. We went ahead and bought it and dragged it home behind the minivan (200 miles). I must admit that we began to worry after the minivan started to choke to death on the first hill (with the check engine light begging for relief). However, the CEL went out after we crested the hill...so we kept on going (as if this was a choice). We came to an understanding iwith the minivan in which take-it-easy was the operational term. That minivan dragged her home the rest of the way without complaint. Bottom job is next.
Thanks again for everything,
Glen

If you think the Capri was bad, the Typhoon would surely have killed the minivan!!

Congrats. I'm surprised the minivan had trouble towing. I can't imagine a Capri 18 being that heavy. You might need to do some service to the van as well.

Oh well at least you got her home. Enjoy!!
