I, too, have a Cape Dory 25. I usually keep it in a slip but brought it home recently for some upgrades and maintenance. You're right. It's on a trailer but
it's not really a trailerable. It's about as trailerable as a beached whale! However, it's built like a tank, is seaworthy and is very forgiving.
I got mine at a low initial cost which included the old storage trailer. After 19 months and over $12K it was ready to go. Now I know for sure that BOAT stands for Bring Out Another Thousand!
I've still got some grand plans for her and a long cruise that is way overdue but the way things are going I may just put her in my neighbor's swimming pool and pretend a lot as I sip a margarita. I was always partial to a Potter 19 but my wife thinks they're too small. Which is really funny since she doesn't go sailing with me! Are you near the Great Lakes? Drop me a line if you want at
