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....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!
