Very nice new toy... newer model year is better, less $$$ on restoration like some of us dummies, lol!
The Capri lacks the headroom without a pop-top, but less weight and less chance for leaks. If I had to give up my pop-top to have a newer, nicer hull... I suppose ducking while going into the cabin isn't such a bad deal!
I grow more and more interested in feel keels, less moving parts = less problems! Plus, your boat is FASTER!

Exactly my thinking. I am getting tired of constantly fixing stuff. Want to enjoy myself. No issue with maintenance and an occasional upgrade/repair. Hope to combine my woodworking with sailing....

Headspace in the cabin is a tad tight for me (I'm 6'4") but I am only looking to day sail for the time being, maybe with an occasional spontaneous overnight.

Planning to buy a Catalina 275 Sport or 315 at some point in the future (at least 10 years out)....

Good boat. Well made/built like bigger cats, great speed in light wind, reasonable interior for small racer, giant cockpit.
