SHNOOL Isn't this like ditching the towncar for a prius because it is easier on gas?

SHNOOL<-who drives his pickup only while towing now, and takes a $4000 focus to work. I hate high gas prices.

bljones Seaward 25/26, depending upon your budget.

or, if you like the Cylon look, a C&C Mega 30.

Both are sailable trailerables that won't break the bank or your heart.

vtsailguy I'd love a trailer like that, but have been looking for 2 months and not found anything I could use. If I had a trailer, I'd rent a truck in a heartbeat. I have even investigated trying to get a steel cradle and lift onto a flatbed.

Actually, I can solo it comfortably in 10-15 knot winds.

@Tommays
"On a more happy note we continue are quest to find out how fast a Cal 29 will go and with yesterdays gusts into the 20s we did a bunch of 7.5s with a 7.7 peak i can smell and 8.0 as we learn more about what makes the boat go fast"

I hit 8.7 knots wing on wing last weekend in a 20 knot wind

Faster Moved your thread for you....

Agree with Tommays it's very difficult to downsize significantly and be happy with it. 6 years ago we tried to downsize from 40 to 30 and ended up with a 35... going from 28 to 40 was easy; going the other way not so much.

If the boat isn't costing you a lot then it's not a difficult boat to doublehand... keep it and really enjoy those rare times the kids join you.

tommays There is no way you will be happy going that small or that much less solid I just pay for the truck and bring the Cal 29 home

vtsailguy Realized this is probably in the wrong forum, should be in boat review and purchase?
