Re: WD Schock Wavelength 24, hull 006
Jeff, Moo has been an awesome boat.
Shes fast, responsive, and easy to sail... It takes effort to sail well, but rewards in spades when you get her right.
I have 6-8 foot itis. I am looking to get something I can hop on and enjoy, sail alone, and take a few folks with me. No more racing for me. Looking forward to roller furling, and maybe lazy jacks. Since I am now at Smith Mountain Lake in VA, I have access to water that does not turn solid, and a marina that has a travel lift and crane.
Boats I am considering, C&C 32, Hunter 31, and Hunter 30 (2 I think, 90s model). There is also an S2 9.1 available there, but I am not sure I want to go S2 again. The C&C I have seen in person and seems well sorted. I have just walked around the others.
I am concerned I will get bored on whatever I get, so a decent turn of speed is still a desire. I was shocked when the C&C sailed in under 4 knots of wind, with just a headsail. It wasn't fast, maybe 1.5 knots, but still, a lot of boats would not move. I'd love to see it in 20 knots true.
