This boat started life as the Allied Boat Company's Greenwich 24 (see page 268), but Allied sold the design and the molds to Cape Dory in 1972, when the company was beginning to add cruising boats (Carl Alberg's CD Typhoon 18 (19) in 1967, Ted Hood's CD 30 in 1971) to its daysailer offerings. Cape Dory modified the hull somewhat, raising the freeboard a bit to get more headroom (which added seven inches to her length on deck and the same amount to her waterline length), moving the head from between the forward V-berths to its own space on the port side, adding a hanging locker, enlarging the galley, and otherwise tweaking the design. Best features: These changes got rid of some of the "Worst features" we mentioned in the Greenwich 24 writeup, and if the manufacturer's specifications are to be believed, after all these additions were made, the boat's weight increased by a mere 25 pounds, with no change in ballast. Can you believe it? We don't. Worst features: Headroom is still too low, but this fault is corrected in the next incarnation, namely the CD 25D; see page 330.
