I WAS honestly looking for a boat that the family
and I could/would beach for the day on picnics along calmer west coast
islands. I learned a valuable lesson from this post that will stick with me all the days I have left... And that is simply-- a boat's character (composition) is a delicate balance-- attributes + / - always have a relational effect on one another. As I add and take away from my list of what is important to me-- two things remain steadfast= Her Blue Water
capability + Integrity of her Craftsmanship. I won't define either of those-- as they are personal items defined by me,'for me-- and those that entrust their safety
to me whilst 'skippering'.
Wrap up: I am no longer looking for a beachable boat-- those are for 20'ers and fun racers with Centerboards-- not for a family
of 5... Sucks getting old... But would not trade
it to be young and stupid again...
