I'm writing from England - the original one - and I'm seeking suggestions. A friend ( not an illegal migrant! ), who now lives in Upper New York, has sent me this request....

"We have ended up putting an offer on an apartment which comes with a boat slip about 1nm due East of the shinnecock canal - what do you reckon is the best option for a 20-24ft day-sailer ?"

I don't know the boats of that part of the world. But some of you guys do. I suppose the task is for gentle pootling about in the bay..... and something that is easy on the eye, too.

What's the congregation's recommendation, please?

Re: Recommendation


They really need to do this themselves. Go look at what is affordable and see what they like best. Tastes and abilities vary so greatly.

My Jim, for instance, has had an O'Day 15, iirc, and also a Catalina 22, as a young adult.

Who scorns the calm has forgotten the storm.
