Sure wish I could afford a pretty daysailer, they really do turn heads. And just like pretty girls you never see a fat one, they all seem to be on the skinny side. I like a little more beam myself. I have to agree with MSTERN because I see the same thing at my marina, most folks are daysailers with the occasional long weekend or week long cruise in the summer months. My wife and I day sail and manage some cruises on a 26' sloop, but we also overnight at marinas and eat out for dinners and the odd breakfast but sleep on the boat and our cruises rarely last longer than 5 days. Considering our sailing style one of those pretty daysailers would fit our needs quite nicely, unfortunately they do not fit our budget. The Hinkleys, Spirit & Alerions get my vote.
