  1. For anyone viewing this in the future the distance on our Catalina 27 normal height rig from the apex of the hatch to the bottom of the sail cover on the boom was just about 24" even. So while we could have stood off the boat above the hatch, ultimately we decided the visibility was impinged too much by stowing amidships. Therefore expect to hear from me starting a spindrift 10n or 11n this summer or winter.

When we’re sailing it’s leisure mode and we’re towing anyways. But if we’re not space constrained then I’ll build a bigger dinghy. If we get into something rough and the outboard can’t keep up we’d be working under reefed main anyways as there aren’t any small headsails onboard.

Requirements (in order) - Rows well with medium 2 adults and passably with 3, even with a bit of chop - Sailable with 2 people and a bit of gear for practical use, fun to sail singlehan
