Re: Com-PAC 19 for summer cruiser puget sound

I really love the C-19 and have been tempted to buy one for the lake near my house. It takes a lot of sober discipline not to go there and own two boats. Must resist.........

If you enjoy kayak camping, then by comparison, sleeping aboard the C-19 would be highly desirable. Although, the sky is the limit, when it comes to just how comfortable you want and can afford to be. Here are some things to think about:

Head: porta potty, MSD with holding tank or none?
Fresh Water: Live off bottled like backpacking, onboard tankage, sink, shower?
Power: Do you need/want lights, radios, etc?
Motor: Stictly sail or have alternative? Inboard or outboard?

Your sailing requirements are a bit conflicted. If you want to gunkhole around fairly tame coastal shallows, the C-19 is a great choice. If you want to cruise up the coast, not so much, but it can be done in the right conditions.

As you are likely already learning, there will be trade-offs.

Yes, I think he got his full asking price. I'm not surprised, the price was a little more then the average Catalina 22 but the maintenance and equipment were up to date instead of having the boat neglected for 5-10 years. So his boat sold quickly while this one has been sitting on CL for about a year:
http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/boa/3589389849.html .
I sold my Catalina 25 for a higher than average price (but less than I had invested) for the same reason.

Winter is a great sailing season here, the wind speeds tend to be higher and more consistent. I've seen well priced boats in good condition sell quickly at any time of year. The slowest is probably in the late fall.

Are you really in Honolulu? I don't think I'd recommend buying boats in this price range remotely, you really do need to see them in person to check condition.

Re: Com-PAC 19 for summer cruiser puget sound

A cursory glance at comparative asking prices; the Com-Pac is more bang for yer buck, in my estimation. Those of the relative;y same years... mid to late 80's seem to be of the same avg prices.
While not strictly apples-to-apples, there's still a lot going for the smaller Com-Pac, IMHO. IIRC, there *might* have been a few C-P 21's built, but time and memory don;t serve so well anymore. None listed at Sail Boat Data as of now.

All depends on what ya want for looks, space and handling??

Best,
Paul

Went to Sail Texas and found several C-P "Eclipse" 21 footers... so there's some to see. Guess I'm not so senile

Re: Com-PAC 19 for summer cruiser puget sound

Going small is one thing in good weather. I'm guessing 19' feels considerably smaller after a week of rain?
Check Craigslist for Bellingham and also Skagit (covers San Juans). Usually some local boats, reasonable prices and they are close to where you want to cruise.

Re: Com-PAC 19 for summer cruiser puget sound

Yes at first I thought boats in Bellingham would be more expensive since they are closer to the San Juan's but ten I realized that most boat shoppers are not from out of state like me and probably want a boat close to home. And home for the majority of puget sound is sea tac. Ill do more checking in the surrounding areas. Thanks.

Re: Com-PAC 19 for summer cruiser puget sound

It's easy enough to move boats from Bellingham down to Seattle that I think most buyers are looking in both locations (and many of the boats listed up north are cross listed to Seattle). I bought my Pearson in Bellingham.

Re: Com-PAC 19 for summer cruiser puget sound

Northoceanbeach... I was planning on towing my sailboat a 1982 US-25 already in the Everett marina to Georgia. but the trailer for the boat is going to take over a month to build and cost more than what I paid for the boat... so I am planning to sell her... if you'd like pictures of the exterior and interior of the boat, outboard, etc. I would be happy to send you photos over PM... I just can't justify the cost of gas and new trailer, etc. to bring her down... it is a beautiful and roomy boat.

I will be needing to sell her before the end of March or sooner.

Nick
