At a glance this looks like a fun place to find parts and information as well as being a place to get to know sailors from...well everywhere.
I'm Ken, I own an old San Juan 7.7 up in Northern WA.
Basic sailing under the KISS system. Mostly day sailing with the occasional weekender but hoping to maybe do something longer.
I'm getting ready to get back in the water, some time in early May is the plan??? That's why I was looking at 'lazy jacks' Single handing can be a handful when you're singhanded. Got some good ideas for DIY.
One of the reason I'm waiting is, I want to do a paint job on it. A friend who builds boats has several gallons of Flag Blue he'll never use, so I offered to help him out if he'd spray for me...What a deal....
Anyway, I've raced a bit and done some chartering, so I know the pointy end from the place with the BBQ. Know what strings to pull and I always try to keep the mast pointing to the sky.
