Capri 18 Without the wing


Jun 11, 2011
Catalina 1980 C27 Meinke Marina on Lake Erie
I'm looking at a 1986 Capri 18 which doesn't have the wing on the keel. For those with these early C18's can you advise as to your perception of the windward ability of these boats as well as any noticeable, excessive leeway (or none maybe, hopefully) that you have experienced with your boat. In the past I owned a 2003 C18 with the wing and I thought the boat performed really well. Pointed great and no side slip. Thanks in advance for your responses.
