ftldiver HOW BIG A TOW VEHICLE?
and where will she be stored (wet/dry) and mast up or down.
budget?


fwiw, I have a waterballast macgregor 26 (d) and, I'd call it a big little boat. biggest berth in anything I've seen under 40' (cal king aft berth).

-not to be confused with the later model macgregor power sailors.

venture 19 - 22 would also fit you size range... and there were a ton built, and seem to hold their values.

(but the answer the Original post, the FS. or maybe a 470 or FJ) but you can flip any of them, so a heavy keel boat would probably be better..

OH, single handing?

(cat 22-25 would also be good choices).

cbresq I have a Canadian Sailcraft 22. It is an amazingly stable pocket cruiser with cast swing keel. I have sailed it all over the Great Lakes, it is easy to single hand and will handle 8-10 foot waves and 30+kt winds. It has great upwind performance (as a matter of fact 2 days ago on Lake Erie I was coming upwind into port and passed 3 larger sailboats). I am taking it south this winter to liveaboard for a few months.

arkriver1 I'm in AR too. and sail mostly on Lake Maumelle, just w. of Little Rock. (when I have a boat). There's a edey and duff Stone Horse for sale in the local papers. Check them out. I also like Dovekie, and Alacrity.

If only they would make a 20' version...

DonScribner Trailerables come in all sizes. My Lancer 25 is a trailerable. We do it every time we sail. Sure, at 4000 lbs wet or dry, it seems a daunting task to step and rig, but my wife and I (both LATE 40's {but she hasn't changed a bit since high school}) do it together on a regular basis with no problems.

If I can be so bold, pick up a copy of The Complete Trailer Sailor by Brian Gilbert, or something like it. Gilbert gives a lot of great information on trailering, sailing and boating in general. In the back of the book, he has specifications, photos, diagrams and critiques on 50 or so small to large trailerables. It can help you with what you like to look at and what you think is a must have or a want to have. The boats are from around 12' to 28'. I bout my copy from Amazon for $9. Well worth it!

If you were to ask me, I'd say look in the 22' range. Small enough to be fun. Big enough to bring a sweet heart and a bottle of Merlot. When the Merlot is replaced by fruit juice and stray Cherios, it's still a fun and usable pocket cruiser. IMHO.

Fair Winds!

mjthompson The Sage 17 prototype looks very good, and thanks for the tip. No surprise it looks like the Montgomery 17 since Jerry is involved in the project. Golden, Colorado is much closer to Arkansas than Dana Point, California, and it's all downhill from Colorado to Arkansas - almost. I suppose I could wait awhile on a purchase. Mark, I will keep you in mind should I sail on Table Rock with a Monty or Sage.
05-23-2011 04:12 PM
MarkCK One last suggestion if you are not planning on buying immediately is the Sage 17. It is similar to the Montygomery 15 and 17. They are about 300 lbs lighter than the Monty 17. They are brand new and are currently have just started on Hull #1. There website is sagemarine.com

If you do wind up with the Monty let me know if you are ever sailing on Tablerock. I was debating getting one for my next boat but have never seen one.
