new member from Quebec,
first.. excuse my english cause french is my first language ;)..

I have been sailing for ever but its been a while since I got on a boat.
I miss sailing. I am looking for a daysailer with no cabin and a swing keel. 18-22 feet, classic , wood if possible. I am not very familiar with day boat brand and I need advices.. I failed in love with a Mc vay Minuet but didn't find any for sell.

any link ? any ideas ? thanks for helping:D:)

OK... not wood, but maybe a swing keel Tanzer 22 or a San Juan 21?

Do you want to do any weekending? or just daysailing?

hi again,

I forgot to say... NO CABIN. the tanzer and the San Juan 21 has a cabin.
in fact its just for day sailing on my lake near the house. the lake has 3 miles x 4 miles.
thanks for advices,

wow,, but honestly, I wouldn't know how to rig and sail it, and its really to fancy and expensive.. I just need a day boat, stay dry with good performance and style.

How much money do you want to spend? How important is it that the boat be of wood?

If F/G is acceptable how about a Viking 22?

EDIT:never mind.. you want a swing keel/centerboard.....

Maybe rare and hard to find, but the Hartley Trailer Sailers might be a good fit, they come in various lengths, TS-16 has an open covered area forward, it's a beamy, multichine plywood hull, a stable, dry boat.

I have never sailed one myself but have seen them sail and have spoken with some owners. IMHO it would be a good boat for your needs as expressed.
They are well built, stable and sail well. You may get some spray in a chop but it is after all a small boat.
Good luck finding one - I have seen some for sale on kiji Ont. and NB. Canada.
