Re: Looking for sailboat for bay that dries daily

We've got a S2 7.9 with a fully retractable daggerboard keel and kick up rudder, seems like that might be an option? Pretty good in light air (20+ SA/Disp ratio). Fairly spartan on the interior as it is a racer/cruiser (as opposed to a cruiser/racer) (but since you are considering the Capri 22, maybe that isn't a concern for you). Just another to add to the list to consider!

Re: Looking for sailboat for bay that dries daily

If you are looking at newer boats, TES 24 available in Canada from TES Yacht might be a good candidate. She definitely meets your needs in terms of low water level, excellent overnight accommodations, CE B category for safe coastal cruising, single-handed operations and you can even go out on a few day long cruise. At about $47,000 new (including trailer and outboard) she will not break the bank either.

Yep, I think that our S2 would likely dry out much like that TES. Bilge is perhaps a bit flatter, and less freeboard, so may even dry out better. Ours is an inboard, that would be one thing I'd be concerned about, so to be safe I'd be looking for an outboard model if I expected to dry her out.

I have seen boats with retractable struts that can be used to prop the boat up in a 'tripod' arrangement with two struts and the keel. Requires that the boat is happy to sit on her keel, of course. I suppose many smallish boats could be so modified or adapted.

An example of a bilge keeler:



Here's an article about 'drying out boats'

And here's another option:

These drogue like keels are typical of what gives twin keelers the reputation for being slow. With properly designed twin keels, it is a different story.

Not sure but the boat on the mud in the picture looks like a MacWester. They make a 26 and 28. I owned one and they are wonderfully sound, but they do not go to weather well. Still, for what you're seeking, that would be the boat.

Re: Looking for sailboat for bay that dries daily

I love my Centaur. Dries out very nicely. Would imagine it could tip if the slope is too great. Points dang close to 40 but does like quite a bit of wind.

Re: Looking for sailboat for bay that dries daily

Everyone, I'm renewing this thread with a new question:
Would you lay down a swing keel sailboat on a daily basis on a beach that's mud with some shells? Or would you be wary of getting mud and shells in the swing keel mechanism, and then having difficulty raising and lowering the swing keel?
There are heaps of trailer sailors out there, like the Catalina 22, Venture 22, etc., and if that would work, it would keep my boat in front of the house w/o needing to get a mooring farther down the inlet (where there is sufficient depth 24/7).
Thanks in advance.

Re: Looking for sailboat for bay that dries daily

I saw a west wight potter in Olympia a number of years back dried out!

An SJ 21 might be a good choice, as it has a rubber cover under the CB, so not as much mud might make it up the CB channel.

If you can go new......Jeanneau has a 33' boat that has a combo CB and twin rudders, and some older SO32's would work too, same setup.
