there is a judge down in corpus christy municipal marina on morph dock that has a few cape dory boats less than 20 feet. i saw one get hauled out for bottom paint last spring. very nice looking boat indeed. the boats are owned by the local boyscout troop. he did say that they were selling one. as i recall, it seemed like they were not asking much for it at all. almost giving it away! i bet anyone that calls the marina could talk to peter and get in touch with the judge on that one. i know i'd love to have it!

My friends Eric and Jaime have a Falmouth 22' Cutter, Coconutz. It's an awesome pocket cruiser. The bowsprit makes the boat longer than 22' but the amenities are basic and for one or two people it can be an excellent cruising boat. It has a cutter rig, so its easy to increase or reduce sail area, and the rig is small enough to not be overpowering.http://sailing.486.us/wp-content/upl...1/Coconutz.jpg

Here's an original Flicka brochure page:

Don't be... That's the Flicka 20 I posted earlier.. would likely sell for nearly 10 times the price of your Santana.... (and you can sail circles around it!!)

i like the looks of the racing profiles. they look shark like to me, very sexy. but my heart is in the cruiser. i love the interior and the ability to take them where ever you want to. who made the flicka? i know nothing about them.

The Flicka was made by Pacific Seacraft. Certainly one of the biggest small boats around.

I've mentioned this before, but if you ever get the chance pick up one of my favourite 'day dream' books.
"Sailing Small: Inspiration and Instruction for the Pocket Cruiser" by Stan Grayson.
I spent hours and hours reading and re-reading that book while looking for my first sailboat. Getting ideas on how to go further on small boats.

The wife wasn't onboard for such a small a boat so we moved "up" to our big / little Contessa 26.

i saw a contessa 26 on ebay for $6000. it was listed several times. noone ever made a bid on it. i thought it was a damned good boat. can you send pics of your contessa? or would that be hijacking?
