Our club has a West Wight Potter 19. It is easy to tow, light and can accomodate a couple easily. I've weekended it several times towing it from Hilo to Kona and return and sailing both coasts of the big island. I'm 6' plus and 70 and I have a hard time moving about the interior
. That, to me, is the only drawback and one that would encourage me not to buy one. If you are nimble, smaller and of less age you would, no doubt, be very happy with one. They seem to hold their price
very high and I can't really understand why but that's not for me to determine.
The boat I would choose now would be a Catalina
22 or 25 and probably lean more toward the 25. I've owned a 22 and had 4 people aboard for a weekend when I was very much younger.
Caution: Stay away from a wing keel.
I wish you the best of luck in your decision.
