learing to sail., jason
You Might look into the Flying Scot also , centerboarder, stable and forgiving . esay to sail. 19ft
also the mac 26x is good, room for 4 to sleep, if you are young and agile. head, motor up to 50hp, easy to rig and trailer, just got back from a 250mile trip from Demopolis , Al, to Mobile ,al, motored on the tombigbee River, 4 days sailing Mobile bay and pensacola bay ,
I think you would want a motor if you sailed the Hudson , .
The older 26 macgregor are built more like a traditional silaboat, 26s or 26d cheaper also .
voyaged on the hudson some time ago, from Poughqipsee and thru 6 locks on the erie canal
Good Luck . Pegleglouis , 26x-1996.
