Getting way ahead of myself...

Recommended Posts

Recently just purchased plans for a Spindrift 10N to use primarily as a explore dinghy for my 19' O'Day Mariner. Have plywood, epoxy and fiberglass tape and hope to start on the build next week.

The Mariner is a great boat, but the cabin is a little small. I'm 6'2" and don't quite have sitting headroom.

The Belhaven and the Princess 22 Sharpie have caught my eye as potential 'next' boats. I know that I should probably actual build the Spindrift before starting to think about building another one -- but what is the fun in that.

I thought I read in one of the posts on this forum that the Belhaven actually has a more spacious cabin than the P22.

Most of my sailing is done in the protected water of Long Island Sound -- Mariner is dry sailed from a Marina on the Niantic River in CT.

A couple of questions:

  • Is the Belhaven's cabin more spacious than the P22? (headroom and berths)
  • Does anyone have either a Belhaven or P22 around the Connecticut / Rhode Island area? Would love to see one!

The Belhaven does have more head room, but I would not say it's more spacious. The berths in the Princess are pretty long. Also the overall cabin length is longer. I have had 6 foot plus folks in my Belhaven and there is plenty of setting head room.
