I just bought a 23 footer and I wouldn't consider it a trailer sailor by no means. Sure I might get a trailer and take a trip once a year to the keys but that just makes it trailerable. I still own a 27 footer I'm tryinng to sell, no way would I even consider putting that thing on a trailer.

hey look my santana 27 lives on a trailer when the sails arent flying and its going to see alot of trips to cal and mexico next year so it all depends on you not the boat. WDSchock builds a 40' that is trailerable ( legally) and its in a class by itself

eMKay I've had a bunch of trailer sailers, but by far the easiest to set up and the most fun to sail is my Hobie Wave. Takes 5 minutes to set up.

Fordzilla Thanks guys for showing me some other trailerable sailboats. Compac is nice but Rhodes seems to catch my eye a little better. I like the idea of wheel steering better than a tiller, but I guess thats a trade off to have to deal with. Armed with a little more information on smaller sailboats. . . .I think I'm almost ready to go shopping. . . .

solarfry Get a Compac sailboat. They are a lot easier to rig and raising mast solo on the smaller ones is a one hand job.
