Howmar 12 day sailor vs catalina expo 12

  • Add to quote

I found a howmar twelve locally. Looks like a fun little daysailer. I also found a Catalina expo 12 as well. It's much newer and has a roller furling sail where as the homar has a lateen sail. http://tampa.craigslist.org/hil/boa/4883505196.html

The two boats are quite different. The Howmar seems a bit more substantial, with higher freeboard and more comfortable seating. The Catalina looks more like a beach toy. Both boats feature a single sail with neither of the rigs looking too complicated. The Howmar looks like it has a bigger sail, which could be useful if you have light wind in your area. What you want to do with the boat will determine which is best for you.  

Thanks for the feedback. I appreciate it.

Howdy: Anybody know where I could source a copy of the Howmar Phantom Sailboat Manual ? Have a two page rigging PDF but left the full instructions in the sailbag and it's toast. Many Thanks,

The boat is a copy of a Sunfish (right?). Beyond rigging (which is simple) what additional instruction would you need?

  7. Howmar 12 Experience : r/sailing

    just looking for general thoughts on the boat. Well, it was designed by Sparkman & Stephens, which is the most reputable yacht design firm of the 20th century, so that's certainly a plus. It will be a HUGE improvement over your Snark, which is basically a beer cooler that's shaped like a boat. Haha, yea the Snark isn't exactly setting the world ...
