I'm thinking of downsizeing to a trailerable. Any one here sail in one of these Edges? Or one of the Cal 25 water ballasted boats? I see the Cal 25 comes in a wing keel also. Anyone here have something nice to say about any of these?

I've talked to a few guys with the 26's and they said roughly the same thing about getting carried by the wind. There's just too much area up front for the wind to catch without enough ballast to hold it. My VN23 has way less hull area to catch the wind. Much easier to dock as well. I like my non-motor sailer just the way it is.
