Re: North Channel Anchoring

Primo trailered pocket cruiser. What mostly distinguishes this from other 17 to 19 footers is the open (no mast support post or bulkheads) and "relatively roomy" interior, and the ballasted shoal draft keel w/ fiberglass centerboard. For two people, its spartan living, but quite doable. Best of all she sails great, looks nice and has a comfortable cockpit. No regrets with this purchase.

Re: North Channel Anchoring

As I recall, the Precisions are quite affordable too, compared with the competition.

When we were at Gore Bay, I spoke with the owner of the red Edel 20 which was near your location. He is a big man in a small boat and I was amazed that has loved it for 10 years. It goes to show that size doesn't matter. Small boats, while short on space are large on options as they can be easily picked up and moved to new locations. It all comes down to managing expectations.

On the subject of Potties; this was our first season with the new AIRHEAD. no stink, no chemicals and easy to use.

How many days usage did you get per person? That has always been my concern as there isn't the option of pumping out if it gets full (at least, not until the waste has composted).

Re: North Channel Anchoring

We were out 5 days with four people. I took it home to dump and was surprised that it smelled like a can of a crawlers when I opened the prize container. It could easily have gone on for some time. The dealer at the boat show said two people for up to two months. I used a solar deck mount ventillator instead of the fan that came with it.
