    Hi

    I'm an ex Hobie and Laser sailor now looking for something suitable for family sailing. Needs to be trailerable and suitable for carring my bride and a couple small children (or just me when I need to get away, or they need me to get away...)

    I've never sailed a Capri but it looks like it would fit the mission nicely.

    Two questions:

    1) Have I picked the right boat?

    2) Are there any problem areas or anything special I should be looking at in a used one?

    Thanks,

    Queeg

    Nice boat to daysail except in wind over 12 knots it can be a handful. the 16.5 is a nice boat too.
