From the other thread - does this apply to the boat above? Suppose I came into Crazy Daves show room and said I wanted a big roomy cruiser but it is very important to me that its easy to trailer and setup. I would of course love to have the deep heavy keel.. but given where I live now.. that boat would seriously miss the mark. The easy to trailer aspect must have driven the water ballast designs - and a lot of them were sold (and unfortanately for someone trying to sell new boats, the used boats are all still around). I dont think anything "modern" is better for trailering.
