Re: New Boat

It will be just as easy to sail the 19 as the 15. Our club here has been sailing a 19 for nearly 10 years and she is a great boat. Launching and retrieving might be a little more tricky but doing it by yourself is still easy enough. Mast raising is a two person job unless you have a system. We have a self designed system.

Congratulations!
