Re: I am SO new....
Run aground! Not a problem! Ha! First time out we hit a buoy! A big, yellow, steel buoy the size of a VW bug! Hidden behind our genoa that we had no right flying, in a 3' shallow we had no business being in, after passing over the submerged (at high) jetty to get to said undesirable shallows. Yeah, the stories I can, and have, told. Wait 'till you drag anchor, loose the kicker, swamp your dingy, get lost in fog. The possibilities are ENDLESS! But . . . it's all fun!
