Re: Amuse me, sailing small boat offshore.

Well, please don't think you are wasting your time. This is a summer of learning and I may not cross to Hawai'i this year, but I'm learning skills that will help me in the future.

I also am doing research and reading about self steering on other avenues, so I'm not asking for you guys to do the work for me, I'm really not finding much. I also just got a GPS and am reading a book on electronic navigation, so I am just packing my brain so many directions.

Once I know what my boat will accommodate, I am going to keep my eye out for a used one in Seattle or Vancouver. I found a website for Mr. Vane, it's 18 pounds. But I would really like to get one of the more "name" brands like aries or monitor that is more proven.

Mike, from what I have heard the Dana is just a rock soid boat that can and has done everything.

I sent a registration to sailing far forums. Looks like a good site.
