You mention trailering, is the boat
going to live in the water
or on a trailer
The 27 was clearly not designed for trailering, as itís a couple inches wider than the legal
limit of 8.5 ft (in most states anyway). Standard draft
of 4 ft is also a lot for ramp
launching, though looks like there is a 3 ft shoal draft
If you are keeping in the water
for the season, towing it to and from the lake each year is probably doable.
The 22 and 25 on the other hand are both narrow enough for legal
towing and available with swing keels that are raised for towing/launching. Montana means mountains right? Whatís you tow vehicle? The 22 is half the weight of the 25.
If you are going to camp on shore, I would consider staying small. You sail from the cockpit
, not the cabin
