Re: Cortez 16

I have been sailing mine for about 13 years. I need to get new sails, mine are so stressed that i have to rig it with an open foot. But even with bad sails, it can move. It did take me a few years to get the balance right. basically let go of the rudder, and set the keel. My sails have teletails on them.

I have noticed my cortez likes 7-15 knots of wind. Which is great cause I live in Oklahoma. The bad part is all the lakes within 150 miles are at 50 - 60% capacity. I haven't been able to launch in a few years.
