Re: How do you find one?

Owned a CD typhoon at the start of my two foot itis. Pluses are very stable and easy to sail. Surprisingly does fairly well in light air and fresh breeze. Well made so even an old one should be structural ok. I trailered it and had no issues setting her up by myself but it took some learning.
Downside for you is I think it would be rather cramped with four aboard. Most I had on her was two and a child and then only in benign conditions. Donít know what winds are like in the Midwest summers but for New England it was a fine boat.
