The Com-Pac 19
"Displacing 2000 lbs. with 800 lbs. of ballast and drafting 2 feet with a fixed shoal keel (centerboards are now available on new models), the CP 19 sails and looks more like an average 22 footer. The lack of a centerboard concerned me at first but having no moving keel parts has proven to be a true hassle-free system. The flat hull shape, which in the Com-Pac fleet is unique to the 19, and a 7 foot beam provide more stability at rest and stiffness under sail than a typical `wine-glass` shaped hull. Speaking of the hull, there are NO through-hull fittings below the water line to make you loose sleep at night.
