ComPac 23 or ?
I'm looking for an easily-handled day-sailor. Ideally I would like a shallow draft boat (3 1/2' or less) but am not keen on centerboards. Of course, I would also like a reasonable turn of speed and decent performance to windward. Finally, I want a good-sized cockpit.
I've stumbled upon a ComPac23 in good shape. The shoal draft is appealing, but I am guessing that I will pay a price in terms of performance (and windward performance in particular). Of course, I recognize that every boat is going to be a compromise, but is this a boat that I ought to consider? It seems to have a loyal following.
