Re: Hi Everyone...Sailstar Corinthian 19 Owner

Hi Bruce and Phil,

I have looking for a sailboat for my wife, 10 and 13 years olds and myself to sail on a protected bay of Lake Erie. Planned on picking up a Cape Dory Typhoon, then started looking at the non-self bailing Corinthians and Ensigns, and liked the deep cockpits better. I was leaning towards the Ensign for its larger cockpit and ability to take more passengers, but the rest of the family really liked the Corinthian.

Locally there is one with solid deck and hull, but the interior has been gutted, and the beam under the mast is in rough shape. But the price was right and I was gearing up for some major work over the winter. Then I found a single owner Corinthian in good shape on the east coast that I purchased today. Now I am looking at the Ensign thinking how great that huge cockpit is. So I need someone to help me out, and eliminate my buyers remise, by telling me what a great boat the Corinthian is, and why it is so much better than the Ensign

The one problem the boat has is that is does collect some water in the cavity immediately below the companionway door in the cabin. Not a lot, just enough. The owner cut a small whole for a sponge. Has anyone else experienced this. Didn't think it was a deal breaker for an otherwise solid boat.

Seriously, anxious to hear what people think about the boat, how it handles, advice on trailering, rehab efforts, etc.

Nice to meet you.
