Approx. trailering wgt.: 4,000 lbs.

Over 700 of these shippy-looking little sloops were built between 1965 and the early 1980s. Alberg's designs are so distinctive that his trademark look is hard to miss. For example, compare this boat with a near lookalike, the Cape Dory Typhoon 18 (19) on page 23. The resemblance is striking, at least until one realizes that the smaller boat is not only a foot shorter but also almost 1,000 lbs. lighter. In any case, while not usually seen on the racing circuit, like most Alberg designs, this one is a solid, wholesome, forgiving, and easy-to-sail vessel, great for daysailing and overnighting in that harbor a few miles away from your home base. Best features: The Corinthian's springy sheer, extended overhangs fore and aft, and reasonably good finish make her a pleasure to behold. Her in-the-cockpit engine well (an optional extra when new) offers convenience to the helmsperson, and because of her hull shape, keeps propeller cavitation in waves to a minimum. Worst features: Her SA/D of 15.3 is in the "very low" category, and her D/L of 399 is considered very high, making her relatively slow in light air (but relatively stable in heavy air).

How To Have A Perfect Boating Experience

Lets start by identifying what exactly certain boats are. Sometimes the terminology can get lost on beginners, so well look at some of the most common boats and what theyre called. These boats are exactly what the name implies. They are meant to be used for fishing. Most fishing boats are powered by outboard motors, and many also have a trolling motor mounted on the bow. Bass boats can be made of aluminium or fibreglass.
