West Wight Potter
West Wight Potters are small, single-mast, retractable-keel sailboats designed for easy trailering and casual cruising in protected and semi-protected waters. They are "pocket cruisers," providing adequate short-term sleeping and living accommodations for a couple or perhaps a small family, depending on the model.In the United States, Potters are currently manufactured by International Marine (IM) in Inglewood, alifornia. They are also manufactured in England by Pot Wight Marine, which is not affiliated with IM; however, the English boats differ substantially from the American boats. Unless otherwise noted, all information in this FAQ rtains to the American made Potters.IM currently makes two models: The Potter 15 (P15) and Potter 19 P19). he P15 is 15 feet LOA, has a swing keel, and sleeps two. The P19 is 18'-9" LOA, has a drop keel, and sleeps four. These LOA measurements include the outboard motor mount, which is included as standard equipment on all new Potters.You can tow a P15 with just about anything with four wheels, practically speaking. Most compact cars work fine, especially if you are towing over relatively flat ground. To tow a P19 safely you need something with a bit more wheelbase and horsepower. Mini-vans, light pickups, and old station wagons are all popular P19 tow vehicles. Automatic transmissions are preferred over manual transmissions, and a transmission cooler may be a good idea if you plan to tow over long distances. Consult the owner's manual for your vehicle for towing restrictions and requirements.
