Re: First boat for small 9 yr old girl?
Brad somewhere is a picture of my sea snark with a pair of kegs in it, doing the same thing for my college graduation party. My brother still laughs when he sails the boat, you can see the rings from the kegs in the hull! He goes it was "yet another night I can't remember."
Great little boats, perfect, and safe to learn with.
"Rum Line" an S2 7.9 - cheap, fast, trailerable, and paid for.
