I purchased this boat on September 6, 2003 for $3,000 (Canadian). There was no motor, no working instruments or
electrical system and it needed some minor repairs before I could put it in the water. Previously, I'd spent my time
in a CL14 so taking the Matilda 20 out was a big change for me. For instance, I could move from one side of the
boat to the other without tipping it over!
My family, although they enjoy an afternoon out on the water, aren't quite as avid as I am when it comes to sailing so I won't be heading out on a world cruise anytime soon. However, we do spend the odd night on the boat and who knows, we might even get out for a weekend sometime soon.
There are some great Matilda resources on the web. Here are a few.
