Hello all, this regarding Cooper Seabirds, wondering if any owners are still about here and if so, your impressions of the Cooper Seabird thus far.
Im looking about, perhaps at one of your boats, who knows
and wanting to know, with the shallow draft and long keel, how she is going to weather and tacking through.
Does the shallow draft actually payoff in terms of increasing anchoring options in places like Sucia?
As well, how she fits (from a cruising perspective, life on board, anchoring, motoring through stiff current, fuel consumption, etc) with regard to motoring through places like the Gulf islands during the summer doldrums.
Also, how she performs under sail up and down the Georgia strait?
Is that center cockpit comfortable, particularly in the weather we have now (rainy March 2017)?
Looking to extend my sailing season without going the Fisher / Nautical route.
