Re: Choosing a small sailboat

I've since had a couple of outings in varying weather. It has been nice, it turns much quicker than I was used to, I'm sure because of the fact it is essentially a dinghy. It bounces a lot in waves, not across the bow but the wild swells of a busy lake of huge wake-setters and circling jet skis. But I never felt concerned about tipping, though it did spin me off my heading a few times.
I have found that after a few days I explored under the sink and found quite a bit of water. I can't tell where it is coming from, either the through hullmfromnthe sink or the drop keel? Anyone have any experience?
