Re: Examples of cca era sailboats

I've got a 1966 Wanderer. It's a great boat.

I wonder how many Wanderers are still around. Less than 200 were made. I wonder how many Wanderer sailors are on Sailnet.

I think that would hold true for any small sailboat in the conditions they encountered, regardless of design type. (Small = less than 150' or so)

There is one in my harbor.

Re: Examples of cca era sailboats

We like our 1964 Rhodes Reliant. We've owned her for thirteen years, renewing all the way except for a two or three month cruise every year. 40'9 loa, 28' lwl, 10'9 beam, 5'9" draft. Good boat for a couple. I think this was the first boat with a full aft cabin.
