I owned a Catalina 22 for 8 years but have been out of sailing for at least that long. After retiring recently I wanted to find a smaller, simpler sailboat and bought a Capri 14.2. It doesn't have hiking straps and I haven't been too concerned since, at 66, I don't plan to push the boat to the limits especially while learning. I could singlehand my C22 with comfort and ease, but after reading post here I'm concerned about how easy C14.2 capsizes. Do I really need hiking straps right now in order to maintain control of this boat. Should I have a Bob installed? Hate to keep adding costs if not necessary until next year's full sailing season.
