Good experience for you. Soak it all up.
Learning to sail is part physical and part emotional and there is a lot you have left to enjoy.
Congrats on your SJ 21 but I can only say that my old boat is older then yours. You will hopefully enjoy the experience as parts and systems need to be fixed on older boats.
Welcome to sailnet; or the 'asylum'.
Thanks for the reply Caleb!
Every prindle I've been on has been much more stable than it's hobie, nacra, or any other counterpart new the same length. They also are a tab bit faster, in my opinion.
I love sailing alone, it's much more spiritual than sailing with friends, which I feel is much less of an experience and more of just a social event. I really hope that I can make the necessary repairs on my boat easily and.. frugally.. I have had a bit of experience with mixing 'glass and patching up boats, the little kids from the lessons banged up our sunfish every week..
Thanks again for replying!
