    Juan more for the identification's sake - look familiar to anyone?    The aluminum trailer is certainly nice enough.  The lines are shit and it needs some clean-up, but it's within what I can put back into the hobby these days. Blocks and lines I can upgrade easily enough...

    Another candidate has come up, a Sumner Islands 15.  I only found one review of it (sailnet) which says it doesn't point worth shit. Well, after a Harpoon with NACA foils, that might be a tough act to follow with anything less than a racing sled anyway.  Thoughts on the Islands 15?

    I is a lot, indeed. What I "want" is more of a pocket cruiser like a Compac or the like, suitable for an occasional overnight or a head for the Mrs (so that there's no excuse for staying on shore).  But, trailer-sailing what I want will be even more work that I'm losing the ability to perform...

    If she's part of the deal, I'll get one today.   I like the race-like rigging that could be used or not used, according to crew skill.  Thanks.

    Condition, obviously.....  sails on the 14.6 are said to be in excellent shape.   Your thoughts on the GP-14?  I see they are at least raced in some places.

    ...or not, though this movie scene with Cpt Jack Aubry pointing at a couple of weevils comes to mind. I'm downsizing from a 17' day-sailor to maybe something in the 14' class of dinghy. Considerations are actual benches to sit on, capacity for two 200-lb adults or one big guy + 2 kids. ...
