    Default H18, Sanderling comparison?

    I know about the motor well, but are there big differences in sailing characteristics between the two?

    So no one? I am a member of the CBA but I forgot how to log on there. I guess I will try to figure it out.

    Got some positive feedback on the HA, so that was good to hear and gives me more options.

    Mickey, the first boat I bought after college was a Herreshoff America. It was a fun little boat. Fundamentally, there is little practical difference beyond having the OB in a well. I disliked it for two reasons, drag and exhaust fumes. Nowadays with exhaust out sufficiently below the water, that issue is less. The Marshall has the advantage of numbers and on going support from a viable builder. You’ve had enough boats so having a builder’s support, while nice, is not essential. You’ll like either one...

    The Sanderlings are built just up the street from me and I like the people and the build quality.
