I saw one come up for sale recently, and kinda like the look. I'm wondering if anyone has experience with them and would like opinions. My sailing is inland lakes, and trailerability is a factor.
I daysailed one on San Francisco Bay years ago. It performed well on that windy day and felt secure in the waves.
Small cuddy cabin was nice but would be cramped for an overnighter.
As an inland sailboat, it would be awesome as a starter boat.
Some acquaintances of mine have one. The owners before them sailed it all over Lake Superior, so it can handle some weather. It's quite a nice pocket cruiser for a couple, assuming you're on friendly terms
They had a lot of problems with the furling main. I wonder why a 22' boat needs a furling main in the first place... Another issue was that it didn't have a vang, because the pop top was in the way.
I don't think it would be quite as easy to trailer launch as some of the boats where the keel fully retract into the hull like a potter 19 and San Juan 21. No big deal I guess if you have anice steep ramp, but I know a 2 foot draft would be a deal breaker on some of the gravel ramps around here.
