Looks like the 23 has much more room inside than the 20.
Yes, but you sure make up for it with your cockpit. Very nice. My cockpit would be comfortable for 2 folks. And, 3 feet isn’t that much more room.
Please post a picture of your boat’s interior, when and if you get a chance.
That gives you alot more options for overnights. We only really used our cabin for storage (on the20) even though you could possibly fit couple of people in there - but pretty snug. However the cockpit is large which gives plenty of room for daysailing with small crew.
My main area of interest - cruising every weekend. There’s lots of storage on this well-made boat for gear. The berth is very cozy; have to sleep in fetal position, so I plan on sleeping aft on port or starboard cushions (accomplished once before while trailered). I’m going to keep it in the water year round. I’m hoping to get a marina close enough to home, where I can sail after work.
It is definitely a quick hull - when you brought it way over the boat tracked really well and we actually won several club races before we really knew much about sailing...our little boat did all the work. And if we ran a good straight tailwind we would hoist the genny and 3/4 crank up the swing keel and the boat would just fly - we just had to watch out for any sudden wind change to tip us with less ballast. It was like our secret weapon in a race....lots of fun ...
Now, that’s exciting to hear. I might race some day, after much learning. Lots of exploring to do this summer.
So, now, if my count is correct, there are four actual Sundance boat owners I/we know about. Started out with just Roger. Please keep in touch folks. I’m gathering data on my boat as fast as I can. I’d appreciate to hear about your boats as well. Roger, I owe you an email in response to yours.
yadusky, glad you piped in. These Sundance boats, although relatively unknown, are nicely done boats.
My Hull # is GFL23026M79H. GFL, no idea, 23 for length, 26 ft mast, Year 1979. H ? Just a guesstimate as to what the number really means.
