Re: Lightnings vs Scots vs Snark vs Sunfish

Thank You Rich for your great response, especially the links to the Portsmouth ratings.

Everything in sailing is relative to your conditions, and so all of the threads on which boat to buy for a "starter" didn't cover what I was looking for.

Since I would choose windsurfing over anything else on a good wind day, I am looking for a small boat to stay dry on for off-season sailing, which is when the wind is better inland. You would know all about that, being in PA.
And I've seen a couple of interesting offerings nearby so I get curious about these odd little bits of boat for sale. They all look like good fun to me.

I would LOVE to see a pic of your skiers behind your boat.
What an amazing ride that would be, without the sound of an engine. It takes less speed to wakeboard, so I'm sure you could get someone to be photographed in your wake. Looking forward to those pics! Thanks!
