Re: Advice on choosing a Daysailer for the Great Lakes
Get a good Viking 28, keep the I and J dimensions standard but get a mast 6-7 feet taller and turn it into a fractional rig.. add a wheel (if you must) and I think you're there!! Change to a more modern keel and rudder and you're totally there!
Only half kidding... all the while we owned our V28 I was sorely tempted to do all that.
