I'm laughing at the thought of the cat straddling the VW's roof. I get it. Sail at all costs! Here in Cali the water is freaking cold (I'm from So Fla originally) so there's no way I'm going to get on a windsurfer. Nope.

I was actually looking at a pretty sweet West Wight Potter. A 14-footer. The Echo's manual, however, says not to tow. And I need to drive more than I need to sail (I invoke Maslow's hierarchy here) so I don't want to chance it.

I did find a partnership, get this, on two ELECTRIC sailboats -- a Newport 30 and a Catalina 27, both converted. Three days a month $100. Not a bad deal. So I think I'll try that out while I work on converting everything in my life to support sailing.
