WDS123 is on a distinguished road
West Wright Potter is still making the Potters - which are the very model of pocket boats.


BTW - the Harbor 25 might fit your definition - waterline is only 21'

If you made your own boat, I'm very impressed!

Mike the one I had was a fun little boat to sail. Very inexpensive to get into
and performed as well as could be expected. I think these are a Gary Mull
design so good little sailors. Of course, it's a Bayliner, entry-level boat so there
are fit/finish issues, but overall, worth every penny of what they can be had for.
Great boat to learn how to sail on, imho.

i noticed that it was very easy on the eyes. it looked "cute". i can see how it can be unintimidating for new sailors to learn on it.

All there "micro" boats look cute and cuddly and photograph well... till you put a person in the picture for "scale" and realize they have to walk on their knees to get to the head and look like a monkey humping a football sticking halfway out of the cockpit sailing the dang thing...
Faster and mitiempo like this.

bljones has a spectacular aura about bljones has a spectacular aura about
My 23' boat has 6' headroom and a bigger cockpit than, oh, say, a PY26.

By the same token the Bucc 25 I just cut up had a whopping 5' of headroom, an enclosed head that one could not turn around in, and a v-berth that felt like a coffin and was only suitable for missionary position activity...if both participants were anorexic.
