14 hulls strong?

1 post in this topic

I know old cats. Have bought them, sailed them, had them fail.

I want a W14 and I see one for sale that is "been club sailed" and has late sails.

What about the hulls ? The ad says  Mark 2 bulkhead hulls (1055; 260, 265 (have no idea)) ...what does this mean?

This is not about comp sailing, but casual sailing and motor cruising....under ridiculous low friggin bridges. So Hulls.

I want trouble free hulls. I see they have trouble with plywood, foam, no bulkheads....

What would you do to suss out the hulls for trouble? Cats are special becuzz of pressure points. I know that boating without rigging is often harder on the frame than sailing...all o that.
