I think the consensus here is that by 24 feet we're into "pocket cruisers" rather than the titled micro range, but that's another pretty, solid well executed boat by Pacific Seacraft.

If you can put the mast up single handed, and ramp launch it, I would say it still fits.

I agree. If you can raise the mast with one hand, it's definitely a micro cruiser.

Here is a photo of a sunrise after a night of storms. My wife and I slept on the boat at anchor. There is a tarp over the boom, we put gear under the tarp and slept in the micro cabin, then woke to an amazing and fast changing sunrise.






I can raise the mast with one hand!

You can't tell, but we are in a protected tiny cove, open to the east.

i sure wish i could raise my mast one handed. it's tough with six hands! the only thing i hate about my boat. i am jealous of all those that can easily drop their mast to go under bridges and such.

You might not be on big enough water if there are bridges in your micro boats way...

I saw this thread develop but did not have anything to add, than we went to the boat show last weekend and I fell in love with this little beauty.



Cornish Shrimper 19

Cornish Crabber 22


I don't know if they made the 12 pages of the thread already, but I would think that the Cornish Shrimper 19 and the Cornish Crabber 22 would be a fine addition to the group.

Re: Micro cruisers

I hope that our 1976 Nowak & Williams "America" catboat is as much fun to sail, as it is to look at. She doesn't look very fast, but we have the Stiletto 27 for that.
