Re: Bob Perry's take on Wolfenzee's dream boat
Holy Cow! I'm 67 years old this month and I still haven't sailed a Folkboat. I know a gal, Carol Hassey, who has one. Maybe if I asked her she'd take me for a sail. Can't see kickin' off and never having sailed a Folkboat.
I can see my tombstone:
Here lies Bob Perry.
He never sailed a Folkboat.
What? You're kidding, right??
Better quit stallin' and get out there, Bob. They really are great boats to sail.
Preferring carvel myself, I was seriously looking at a couple of IF's over here but then the opportunity cropped up to buy my boat for not much more dough (bigger, roomier, a bit less tender - ie. nicer for Mrs H), otherwise I'd own one myself right now.
