  1. I ended up with a Venturer 20 which has got some good use in the last few months. She is in AKL Northshore.
  2. Was enjoying the brease today and had a fantastic run to Brown island but the rudder snapped before the lunch break I dont have the time and skill to build a replacement swing rudder. Question is where do i go and get one built? YS
  3. Thanks for the info. Yes I had seen these ratings before which seems to be more relevant to racing. I am a cruiser so doubt a knot or two drop in speed will affect me much. Knowing the yacht has good SRI is great but how these translate for a newbie cruiser out there? From your experience with Caribou, I would guess common sense and safe practice are more important than a high SRI index?
  4. Thanks for the info guys, much appreciated. I missed on the Sabre, still looking at bonito and am reluctant about M20 as its too ugly to my eyes. Anyone knows about VENTURA 20 TS? They look like a nice shape hull and good size cabin but there is hardly any info on them on internet.
  5. Dear Crew members, Kia ora Here is a newbie looking for a safe and roomy trailer sailor to accommodate recently expanded family. This pal has sea kayaked to and circumnavigated all Hauraki Islands except for the Barriers now looking for a bigger vessel for family adventures. A lot of time will be spent in the Cabin so goodies like Noelex 22 have been excluded for this reason. As it appears the standoff is between Davidson M20 and Bonito Aquarius 22. The M20 has had many upgrades, is cheaper and ready to sail. The Bonito is bigger, good looking and roomy but a tad more expensive
