Re: Ericson 25 vs Catalina 25
I too am in the market for a trailerable, or should I say, trailer launchable boat. I have read many posts from many forums and everyone has their own opinions about which ones would be easier to set up, launch, retrieve, sail, etc.. This is all well and good and the discussions can lead to many interesting threads and realizations. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I am a "show me" type person. What I would love to see would be a video of a husband and wife team show up at the boat ramp with a c25, e25, or any other of the larger trailerable sailboats. Then show the entire process of preparation, then show the actual launching, then show the actual trailering when done.
I ask for this because i have heard so many things about if you can or can not launch this particular boat, or gee that can't be easy or it depends on the ramp or it takes so long everyone at the ramp will hate you or whatever. Lets get down to the facts. Show me launching one of these boats with just you and your spouse in a reasonable amount of time without damaging anything. This video would answer more questions and give me more satisfaction than a hundred forums of opinions.
So, if anyone has such a video or can make one, then bring it, or "show me"!
