Owners' reviews of Cape Dory Typhoons and Precision 23s

We are looking for input from current and former owners of Cape Dory Typhoons and Precision 23s for our upcoming boat reviews. Do you know someone who owns or has owned one? If yes, please forward this message to that sailor.

Please send your comments to Dan Spurr at: by April 15.

Specifically, Dan wants to know about:

  • sailing characteristics (good and bad)
  • level of quality in the build
  • what you like most about the boat
  • what you like least about the boat
  • specific problems you and others have had with this boat, like a leaky hull/deck joint
  • advice you would give to someone considering buying this boat

If this isn't a boat you've sailed in the past, please stay tuned for future messages. We're bound to come upon one that is or has been in your collection over the years. Right now, if you have had experience with a Cape Dory Typhoon or a Precision 23, we're anxious to hear from you. Thanks for sharing your experience with "the rest of us"!

The crew at Good Old Boat
