Okay, so I have just lofted Stambaugh's Winward 24 (a trailerable, plywood/epoxy coastal cruiser) and will start construction in a few months. My son and I will build and it will be enough of a sailing experience for us for four or five years.
I am already starting to think about our second boat. Anyone out there have any impressions of the strengths and weaknesses of the Concordias (wife, son and I are thinking about living aboard)? Woodenboat's "Fifty Wooden Boats" includes plans for the Concordia "33", a traditional carvel planked over steamed frames. The narrative claims "She has a good, roomy cockpit, standing headroom under the deckhouse, two cabins, and an enclosed head. Lke the other Concordias, she features a clean deck arrangement, an uncomplicated rig [Marconi], and an honest, frill-less appearance. Intended capacity: 3-8 daysailing, 4 cruising."
The "33" displaces approximately 15,000 pounds and the Marconi has approximately 550 sq ft of sail.
I have another post on Misc regarding living aboard.
