    The extra cockpit space and the light year leap in speed will be worth it. I race/cruise a 26 foot boat (J80) with only 2 v-berth cushions and a 5gallon bucket with a toilet seat. With a crew of 4 we spend almost all waking hours in the cockpit anyway. It would really be ideal if Makita made an 18v blender I could bring. But so far with no kids my wife an I have enjoyed this size boat for 4 years. We will at some point have to step up to a bigger boat. Less interior does have the huge benefits of lower maintenance and less headache.

    Wait, you actually use the cockpit in a J80? That’s a super tight fit! We only day race those bad boys.

    haha, ya the interior room is really what im going to miss the most. Reasonable head height, walled off v birth, table with folding wings and built in cup holders... Makes weekend party barge/overnighting days pretty enjoyable. Hopefully i forget about all that when the kite is up and we're doing some real sailing. If i get this thing my buddy (also with a c25) will convoy out to WYC this year for the capri nationals lol

    Im sure there is a relatively east way to fashion a regular blender to a drill or something for such occasions. I might have to give that a whirl this summer :D

    I sure hope so! A keelboat without a blender is incomprehensible!

    welp, i did it, i bought the boat. Capri 25 Hull# 31. Good history, stored inside every winter except this one, guy owned it well for 30 some odd years apparently, 1 or 2 owner boat?! His family just didnt want to deal with it over the last year or 2 and he was getting pretty old. New set of sails in the last 3-4 years...maybe a tiny bit of glass work needed around the keel and the through hull. Im going to need to redo the wiring in there, fucking rats nest like all 30 yo boats, but i could race it tomorrow and be good to go.

    just need to wait 6 months for the ice to melt haha

    first race was...a failure. impeller shredded on the 2.whatever mile trip to the start line, so the outboard reached 90 gazillion degrees and of course stopped working (not siezed luckily) and there was almost ZERO wind so we were 20 min late over the start line. Oh well, after the race i hailed my buddy who is the race chair (and has the same boat as me)
    *over the radio*
    "race committee, race committee, race committee, this is capriola, would you like to come raft up and have gin and tonics and party"

    "Capriola this is race committee, since the race has concluded my duties are complete for the day, the crew of little wing would love to come over and party, we will be there shortly"

    The rest of the weekend we had to sail in and out of the marina, and also sail to the boat ramp. I love being a navigational hazard.
    Also got to get the kite up for the first time which was great, just in time for next weekends race. hopefully we do....much better
