Hey! Some of us have brains, too.
CaptainMayhem, welcome aboard! My boys are 7 and 4 (soon to be 5). I see that you're a little northwest of me. Where will you be doing your local sailing? We're going to be on Peace Valley using an old Albacore that I picked up on Craigslist for cheap. Our "big boat" will be out on Barnegat Bay this summer, if I can get her there.
Nockamixon, then somewhere down around MD for the cruising I hope.
Looking hard for a boat right now, 32-34' really like the look of the beneteau's inside and out.
But will end up with what ever fits the wallet I'm sure.
last time I sailed was my honeymoon, took the wife out on a hobby cat,lol
I swear the wrinkles have yet to clear from her face, we did actually submarine the thing, caught a wave and it just went down right up to the tiller. Bobbed back up straight away but that was the end of that fun,lol
Now I get to do it with a seven year old who has no concept of dancing with the wind. can't wait
