thinking about a trailor sailor
We've done our last ocean passage and selling our Valiant 39. Wonderful boat. We live at Tahoe so are contemplating another lake boat. we had an O'day 25 in the past and this time would like something smaller and lighter. Requirements would be 1) a well designed and built boat 2) comfortable enough for 3-5 days of cruising 3) fast and easy to rig. This last one is important for day sailing. Don't want to rent another bouy at exorbitant process so want a boat that is easy to rig/derig. Boat ramp just down the street.
Catalina 22's seem a bit spartan. Ranger 23s look kind of cool. Am wondering what thoughts you guys might offer on these or other similar vessels?
