Re: Daysailers: Mostly Dry?
We owned a ComPac 16 (II) in the early 80's. If I had to do it over again I wouldn't hesitate a second . . . to buy a Montgomery 15 or 17 instead.
But then we're lake sailors and spend a lot of time clawing upwind. For freshwater the ComPac needs a foot more keel or a board and 25% more sail area.
Very solid, very well made, very stodgy. I will say I believe that bout could suffer severe conditions well.
