Howdy. Brand new sailor from Western Nebraska. We don't have much water but we make up for it in wind. I am in my fifties and have recently started sailing in my 150 dollar Hobie Holder12. I don't have a real sail, been using a wind surfer sail and mast modified with some PVC pipe applications. Everytime I go sailing I see people pointing and making redneck jokes. The rig needs alot of wind to become sporty, but I have learned to getaround the lake despite the crudeness. The main reason I joined this site was trying to get some info on where to obtain a replacement or other mast and boom which would work for my boat.
