Trimaran Sailing

OOps !

I forgot to mention my draft. These F-boats have dagger boards. With my board all the way down, I draw 4.5 ft.

When I raise it all the way up, I only draw 1.5 ft.

There have been more than a couple of times when I grounded (err, uh, I mean, decided to clean off my daggerboard.) - Biscayne Bay was the last.

Didn''t need to call sea tow or make any sizable contribution to Florida''s "Sea-Grass Disturbance Fund". Nope - Just raised my dagger board a bit, and off I sailed.

Best to ya,
