Re: Shaking a pop can and opening it -Seaworthiness

By seaworthy I assume you mean for blue water offshore work? I have sailed a SJ 24 extensively and would not put it on the list, although it's a great little boat for local sailing. It's a lot smaller than many others at up to 30 feet also. Alberg 30, Cape Dory 30, maybe Baba 30 etc would be on my list with many more.

I think wellin was being a little tongue in cheek.

Ya the San Juan would make a perfect coastal cruiser, but might be a little too weighted down with all the gear for a long passage. nice boat none the less!
Thanks for the input guys!

I sailed one named Green Envy - well suited.

The quality of the boat is great. It is solid with quality equipment. All kinds of nice Crealock touches. You get what you pay for.
