Thanks, sail sfbay! I did another thread comparing the wing and fin keel models and I think I'll go with the wing. There are also quite a few located in the southeast, so transport from California is also no longer required! FE was one of the sites I found online and there trailers are...
That's for sure here in Amelia Island area. I was planning on using a local marina that also does dry storage and will load/unload trailerable for $95. each way. Planning on slipping the boat there except for getting out for hurricanes and doing trips to paradise, :)
Thanks delling3! The votes are piling up for the wing keel and it pretty much answers my original statement about so many wing keels being sold, over the years. It also helps my purchase situation with so many more wings available with trailers.
Thank you!! That is the kind of input I was looking for. I realize the fin will point better, but I was looking for HOW MUCH better and if it is worth the other down sides of the deeper keel. One vote for - no.
Hah!! Good diversion, Justin!
My question still stands: How much better does the fin sail? I am SAILING for enjoyment, so the SAILING is my key concern. The other concerns are secondary IF the fin sails significantly better.
Ok, a real "new guy" question.
I want to go Catalina for multiple reasons, not the least of which is availability of parts and priceless information.
I am in Amelia Island, Florida location and we have a very large adequately deep bay area in the combine of St. Marys River inlet/ICW/Kings Bay...
I'm trying to get a used fin keel Capri 22.
One in Oceanside, CA, right now at a decent price but no trailer.
I'll probably ship it to Florida but would rather have it on a trailer before shipping.
