Re: Westsail 42 vs. Dickerson 41

Sorry to resurrect a somewhat old thread but I'm looking at both of these boats too and am interested in what you guys think. Don't just vote, reply!

Re: Westsail 42 vs. Dickerson 41

NONE of the above!!!!!

i will take a fin keel way before the two full keels, in fact, I have heard of dickersons' beyond that.....do not know a thing about them.

All the boats may be good.......I do know the W32 is 3' longer than mine, and has more ballast than mine weighs!

Re: Westsail 42 vs. Dickerson 41

My choice would be the W 42 ketch rigged . Although Westsail is out of business, there is a support group WOA. Also the guy who used to manage the Westsail Corp. is still in business as Worldcruiser Yacht Co .
