PostSubject: What Is The Meaning Of A Trailerable Sailboat?   Wed Jun 27, 2012 2:32 am

I asked this question at another forum and was surprised at the answers.

What is Trailerable really mean?

Is two hours on the telephone getting one time use oversize load permits Trailerable?

If you cannot load and unload it with one person does that count it out? (point made on the other forum, which I find rather silly, I can't cook for myself, but I eat rather well. Lol)

For me, I live around waters that turn from liquid to solid two months of the year, and as money does not grow on trees, this hobby of mine has to be self assisted as much as possible. I cannot afford to pay someone to wrestle the boat in and out of the water.

Looking for a large trailerable sailboat is what brought me to Clipper Marine.

I had a 25 MacGregor, that I loved to sail, but the cabin was like pulling on a pair of tight pants. lol

I never went below, because it was like stuffing a map in a glove compartment.

Looking around, Clipper Marine seemed the logical answer, but the logical answer was going on 40 years old and very much out of business.

Nebraska has about a dozen sailboats so I knew a large CM was not going to be found here. My search went nationwide.

After many months, and several rabbit holes with no rabbits in them, I located two 32's. Both far away.

The rest is history.

For you folks in the 21 to 26 range, why did you choose CM when there were so many choices you could choose from?

What do you think makes a trailerable sailboat?

My choice is made, my choice is solid. My choice is wonderful.
