I''m looking at boats to sail on the Chesapeake and this one has got my attention. I checked out the message boards here and only found a few comments. Anyone have any opinions on this boat? Any specific items that I might need to watch out for?
I''ve been sailing most of my life, but never owned a boat larger than 14ft, so this is a big step. One of the things that appeals to me about this boat is that it''s small enough for me to singlehand (I''ve got tons of experience on larger boats) and gain experience with the systems I would find on larger boats but big enough to cruise the Bay. I was looking at boats in the 30 foot range, but the money and knowledge needed to keep them in shape is a bit daunting. I think this would be a good first "real" boat for me.
Like I said, I could really use opinions on this boat specifically, but if someone has a better idea for what would be right for me, by all means shout it out.
