Re: Terrapin 24 ?

Re: the Terrapin 24. These boats were built by Mike Brescher at the "Friendship Manufacturing Co" in South Miami. Having owned and sailed one for over 20 years I can vouch for their trailering ability. They are not the fastest boat in their class, and they do tend to heel over quite a bit, but they are comfortable and spacious. Wish I still had mine! My hull number was 34, and I still have a full set of sails and a reacher for it, I just need a hull. I'll be glad to help with any specific questions.

Re: Terrapin 24 ?

Thank you! She's back in the water and feeling the bugs out. My main concern is the center board. The cable broke so I dove and attached another but it tends to swing side to side and bang around a bunch

Nice job!

A 14-foot mini-cruiser is minimalist. A 19ft is comfortable, and anything much larger than a 25 borders on ostentatious.

Re: Terrapin 24 ?

I also just bought a Terrapin 24. I bought it because I needed the trailer, temporarily. Now, I'm not sure weather to keep it or sell it. How well would this boat work for cruising the Keys an Carribean island hopping?

Yes that's the same boat, she sails great in light or a bit heavier winds and handles bigger waves amazing
