Sweet little boat

Minor refits (cosmetics mostly) on existing platforms are all I see in our future at this point though. I haven't got it in me to go the full nine on a boat (for us anyway) again anytime soon.. I know how deep that rabbit hole can go... less obsessive attachment and more fun, that's where we're at these day..

Yea, small. Way small. 22' or less..

All excellent choices you listed though of course. Fantastic boats.

Never once snagged one.
Have fun shopping.
I must say that Sailmaster 22 is one of my favorite designs of all time. I have often thought that when I got too old to push big boats around, I would go back and and buy one of the Keel centerboarders of that era: something like a Sailmaster 22, Dolphin 24 or Morgan 25, and go explore the quiet corners of the Bay that were too shallow for my deeper draft boats.

Of course I would add modern sails, change deck hardware so you never had to go on deck, and the reefing so I could reef on the fly.

Hey, don't shoot me, I said when I was older, not dead.

I've owned a typhoon for a few years, then went to a sailmaster 22, sailed her for 2 years then sold her. Regretted that move and searched for another. My present boat started as a sailmaster and was modified by the former owner. She's a pleasure to sail, ez to own, brings back the 'feel'

Lightning!
I bought one for 2500, sailed it hard for 5 years and sold it for 2000. 19', trailer-able,
One of the most popular one designs ever. Flat bottom, planes in a puff, yet very stable.
