Re: Sailing on a shoestring.
I'm a shoe-stringer! I have a pile of kids too but I love sailing. My boat, I got for 2k and I'm having to make payment on that... we don't really get to cruise 'cause we sail on a Lake that is Little Rocks Water supply, so the kids hate it 'cause swimming isn't allowed.
My other issues are: Since I can't jump in the water due to regulations I can't verify my draft. And btw, I don't have a sounder. My wind vane on the mast is about 30* off.
We do what we can to sail, It may not be much or fancy but sailing on a budget beats wishing I was sailing....
