Re: uh what?

Another fine example of someone trying to sell their boat, and it's full of their junk.

Boats like that are wonderfully charismatic. They draw at the heartstrings of even performance sailors like myself. To me this would be a neat boat if you lived some place where the prevailing conditions were generally in the 12-18 knot range and you wanted a little boat to explore back corners of nowhere. There are parts of the world where there are lots of closely spaced islands and anchorages and a boat like that would be fun to explore in. Between the shoal draft and the general seaworthiness of a boat like that, it would allow minimalist cruising at its finest in that kind of venue.

Personally, I would be tempted to look for a bit more performance but someday I suspect that I will need what my wife and I call my 'old man' boat, and that would not be a bad 'old man boat' in the right venue, so who knows.

Re: uh what?

It's about 25ft too short for me LOL Having had a 30.. I could never downsize if I were to get another boat. and perish the thought... POWER BOAT (trawler, motorsailer types) NOT Mac26

No need to heave to, to motor into storms. Just hit the reverse.

Heck... you want a West Wight Potter 19. Trailerable easily, launch at any ramp with a 6 inch draft, 3.5 feet with 400 lb steel dagger board down,, semi-displacement hull, and able to sail comfortably in 25 knot without getting wet with very high freeboard. Sleeps four very good friends; rudimentary galley, port-a-pottie, roller furling jib, boom vang, all line to cockpit. Just what you need for those special days, and totally unsinkable even if you put in a hole.
