Re: Ideas on which dinghy/small boat to buy?
I have a Lido 14' by WD Shock that I sail in Mission Bay San Diego. Lots of fun and easy to sail single handed. There are several clubs associated with the Lido on the West Coast and they are raced quite a bit. Overall weight is approx. 300 lbs with a 6" beam 110 sf sail area, main & jib. I do not race but cruise around the Bay on weekends. They are durable. Mine is a '72 model and holding up well.
