More SR33 than Mumm 30, I think. But a pretty good boat any way you slice it.

Another local boat, that should be racing is the Cheetah 30 that is growing barnacles at VRC. I think that has the potential to be a real weapon once dialed in, as shown by the Vancouver Island Cheetah.

It has for sale forever. For a cool $26k. Is there such things as squatters rights for barnacle covered boats?

That boat has near new sails and should be fast around here in the summer.

Local, I always liked these. Like a cruising 242:

I like this one.

Could one cruise the gulf islands in something like this or is this a little too small? You keep listing these nice looking cheap boats and I keep showing the bank(wife). The nice thing is she isn't saying no, just not right now so there is hope.

Totally could, until you make more kids anyways.

Can't find pics of the interior right now, but what is cool about the B7.6 is the cabintop is as wide as the boat, makes for way more seating space inside compared to other similar boats.

In my young and stupid past...

I used to cruise the Gulf Islands with the "girl of the moment" quite comfortably in a Martin 241. That Bomber 25 is palatial compared to the Martin.

The key to cruising in a small boat is a good boom tent. Two actually, one of Sunbrella that will keep the inevitable rain off and a smaller nylon (tent fly) one to keep the sun off.

The Bomber 25 being a MORC design should have decent sea keeping qualities. Like most MORC boats she should point like a tour guide and go straight down-wind with pace equal to most 30'ers.

What are you waiting for Drizzie. "She Who Must Be Obeyed" didn't say NO, so that's as good as a YES. (Beg forgiveness rather than permission)

Your mileage may vary...

After working with the owner of the Vancouver Island Cheetah developing the inventory and getting the boat up to speed, the boats actually have a wicked rating and are tons of fun. Ditch the furler and the silly genoa that sheets between the shrouds. Max roach jib, square top main and more reasonably sized kites.

Simplify the deck layout the the max!

Could not believe how bad it looked at VRC when we were there for Straits. Wish someone on the Island would buy it...

I have a friend on Salt Spring with a Pocket Rocket. He cruises the gulf islands very successfully with his wife and 5 year old. I was on board over the weekend and was impressed with how much they crammed into the boat and how comfy they had made it. They even tow around a sailing dinghy.
