There are usually a bunch of Marshall Sanderlings around.

They're 18 footers.

I was researching pocket cruisers here a while back. I think the Compac Legacy would be a sweet option for you, and you could certainly raise the mast after ducking the bridge... full length keel, and board to lower after the fact and a cozy cabin. Stable little craft, but pricey... The Sanibel 18 would be hard to beat as well. A little more sleeping room below on the Sanibel, and slightly more beachable than the compac. There are some great mast raising tools that come with the mcgregors, but I had bad experience with the 26s model, and its ability to "point." I think I would go for the Sanibel in that situation...

Thanks for all the advice.
The com-pac suncat looks great. It seems like a really easy boat to rig. BUT There are not many used ones in my price range 2-4k. Are there any other <20' pocket cruisers with masts that easy and fast to rig? Can they be rigged while afloat?

Nordica 20! I promise you will love this boat, it is a 20 foot double ender. Best 20 foot boat ever! I love these boats for the stability and quality of larger boats but in a tiny package.

I can't post websites yet but just google 'Nordica 20 sailboat'

got my boat!

Well, after weeks of looking I ended up going with an '88 compac 16. I took her out for her 'maiden voyage' on saturday and she was a fine sailor with a roomy cockpit, hardly any draft, and a mast that's light as a feather! I couldn't be more pleased...

well, there was one problem...

the bow eye (ubolt) is loose in it's seating (rotten wood block) and a small trickle of water is getting aboard! I assume I need to remove the rotting wood block and replace it, however, does anyone know how I should go about sealing it afterward?
This should probably be another post huh? I will post in the "Gear and Maintenance" Section under the title "compac 16 bow eye loose... rotten wood?"
