West Wight Potter 19

Our club just launched our WWP 19 after some extensive hull repair due to a parted mooring line. This is the second time I've done the glass work on "Whippy" after a mooring incident and she is easy to work on once lifted off the trailer and balanced on 55 gal. drums or with wood blocking.

She is a great boat for trailer sailing. Can be towed by nearly anything with a weight of about 1900 lbs, has a 300 lb. daggerboard and with the kick up rudder can be beached easily.

Her sail inventory is main, jib, lapper, genoa and spinnaker. She has all the gear aboard that a much larger boat would have and is just as much fun to sail in a smaller package.

She is highly recommended to those who might want to have a good trailerable that will prepare you for your "next" boat.

Re: West Wight Potter 19

Oh, and it can be pushed around with the very smallest of gas outboards or in our case a seawater version of the Minn Kotta 12v electric outboard. Very economical with a solar panel that keeps the battery up while moored or on the trailer.
