what determines a coastal cruiser???
Are you saying seventies boats for the price or for the heavier construction?
My wife makes a fine sailors when she gets her sealegs and we communicate well..
the dogs are very little 10Lbs and are like our children, they are paper trained and can go potty on the shower floor.. Yeah oh well it''ll work. In rough weather we put them in a small crate. I think they are actaully easier to deal with than kids as they never complain...
