How long does it take to put the mast up and secure it on a rig like that and get it in the water? I''m thinking along the same lines as you guys. I want a 25'' or 26''trailerable sailboat.

I have never sailed on a Com-pac 25, but had the opportunity to look one over at the Annapolis sailboat show a few years ago. It caught my interest because I had just purchased a 26 ft.trailable sailboat called a "Classic Yacht" and at the time of purchase, Com-Pac hadn''t released the 25.The Com-Pac 25 is a very nice boat! Before buying the 26 footer, my first boat was a Compac-19. I went to Hutchinson''s mfg.plant in Clearwater,Fla to get the boat and was given a tour of the plant while there. The quality of their manufacturing process is top notch, and their boats reflect it. The company stands behind their product, and the boats hold their value well. I''m very happy with the boat I purchased and you might want to also take a look at it, and maybe a Seaward 25 to have some boats to compare the Com-Pac to.I''m sure there are some other "big" trailable sailboats out there, but those are the two I''m most familiar with. My boat was manufactured in Chanute, Kansas and I think the company has a website,as does Seaward. Anyway, good luck on your endeavour!

I would like to hear from any sailors that have actually experienced this boat or has knowledge of this boat. I am really looking for the largest in small cruising boats that are trailerable of good quality. I have been to the Compac website but I would like to hear suggestions or any comments and unbiased opinions on the Compac 25.
I really appreciate it!
