Re: Micro cruisers

How about the Cape Dory Typhoon?

The did two versions of it; the daysailer and the weekender.

I've looked at both of them for sale around here in Maine. IIRC, the daysailer is NOT self bailing, any rain or sea water has to be pumped out. I'd never get one. They both look like they would sail nicely.

Be aware that the weekender (again, if I recall correctly) has the mast stepped in front of the cabin, so it would have to be lowered forward where there is not much length and very narrow.

Both have tiny dark cabins. They do have full keels and look quite stable.

Edit, Correction: I was looking at "Sea Sprites", not "Typhoons". See my correction with links a few posts down.

Re: Micro cruisers

I always liked them; but they are not too common down here and for what I gathered they are not easy to launch from the trailer, so I stopped wanting one, I still think the lines are very nice for a full keel 18 Footer.

Totally agree, beautiful lines! That's why I drove to look at them. If the weekender was stepped on the cabin top I'd own one. I want pleasure to look at, decent sailing, and ease of use.

I ended up filling that size need with a Victoria 18, a bit smaller, not as nice a keel, but a snap to lower and raise the mast and trailer.

I love the Victoria 18, I looked for that one too, but again, over here very hard to find. I like the lines of the Victoria even better, I think is a boat with some attitude.

Re: Micro cruisers

I see them for sale down your way, search craigslist. Here is a beauty near me:

18 Ft Victoria Sailboat

I'm tempted, but my wife will ask why I need two. She's a bit too practical. I only have four sailboats.

Edit: Upon reflection, the Vic18 is the only boat I have that my wife ordered " I don't want you to ever sell that boat!"

Re: Micro cruisers

I need to make a correction, according to sailboat data the Cape Dory Typhoon is stepped on (or through?) the cabin top, not in front of the cabin, visible in the elevation drawing at this link:

TYPHOON 18 (WEEKENDER) sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com

I don't know what I looked at, something very similar, or - doubtfully - they changed the location. I was looking at hull number #1 and #3 IIRC. Whatever I looked at had the mast in front of the cabin on the deck, something I'd never seen before.

Edit: I looked at Sea Sprites, similar looking and I guess I mixed up the names. Here is a link to the Sea Sprite on sailboat data:

I looked up your boat on the net and found nothing, you seem to be the only one offering information on it. Maybe you should start a thread about your boat so all the information can be gathered in one spot. You've got her looking nice!
