Re: First Boat
There is a huge difference between the

The built qualities are perfectly acceptable of the V23, and all of the above for "light" duties.
I've found that most people who figure on sailing trailerable boats as their first boats (then pick LARGER trailerables) have a complete misunderstanding of how much work is involved to trailer, then sail the boat, then derig and trailer home.
I agree with others though that given the sailing venue, you might wanna get a boat that is heavier built. If you still have to trailer sail, consider something like the Compac 23.
