Can anyone give some advice to me?

I am looking for my first sailboat. I looked at a 1988 Hunter 23 today and I am very interested in it. Does anyone have experience with trailering this boat or anyother fixed keel boats. How much of a headache is it? Any ideas to make it easier?

I have a Hunter 20 which I use off a trailer. It takes me about a half hour or so to get the boat ready to put in the water. I always have a second person to help raise the mast , in other words I don't use any mast-raising system. I don't think I would want to trailer a boat any larger than mine but alot of people do and have more than a few build mast-raising systems that seem to work quite well. You might want to try trailersailor.com for more info from a site that is dedicated to trailer-sailors. Good luck with your new boat...!

I think the OP might have gotten to all those spots by now too. Looks like that was a pretty old post. Regardless, welcome to Sailnet! I transitioned from trailer sailing to a boat requiring a travelift. Must say, there are things I miss about the versatility of attaching my boat to my Jeep and going.
