Good First Boat

Pcpk: I wouldn't want to start out with a 30-footer for my first boat - way more boat than is practical for a novice's first boat. SlowButSteady outlined the ideal approach; but, not everyone is...

Looking for the perfect boat

I sail a Catalina 22 - as stated in an earlier reply, they are a great all-around boat, can be purchased very reasonably, but do not excel in any one area. We are lake cruisers and our C-22 is a...

Honda Guy Here...

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions.... Your Input Please

Tubing with a sailboat

Azzarac nailed it. I think the MacGregor is the answer. We have a Catalina 22 that we love; but the kids want a Mac. It may be a compromise;but, the Mac owners that I know love them - and the kids...
