Has to be the first sailboat I owned...a McVay Minuet..all 18 feet of her. Full keel and cubby cabin. Sailed her on Barnegat Bay then, but I think I'd like to try her on SF Bay.

What I love is when I pass a 45' monohull sailboat in my little 28' trimaran... I wave to them, but they almost never never wave back.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Seawind 33 catamaran. Wow! I can stand up and walk around without looking for something to hold onto. Welcome to flat sailing.

For me, Oh Joy is the sweetest thus far. She has an easy motion even in the nastiest seas, puts the rail at the water and moves out smartly and has plenty of sail combination's to fit the conditions. The fact that she's a gorgeous old classic doesn't hurt. While I'm sure there are sweeter sailing boats out there, I haven't sailed one yet.

For nice sailing and handling. International Dragon my mate owned.
Not at all comfortable, strictly a day boat but it's long keel gave it hands off sailing ability. Had a nice motion as I recall.

Would have to say the Schooner "Woodwind" out of Annapolis, but then I have only been on a handful of sailboats.
