Re: Wooden sailboat suggestions please
Thanks to Jones - see - I knew I was forgetting stuff to ask her. Here is what she responded (remember - FICTION!!!!!)
1 - An outboard motor would be preferable. And it is an old boat that she has to refurbish, something fairly economical since her 17 yr old brother was able to buy it by saving every dime for a couple years. In the actual regatta, I have my team coming in 1st and celebrating the win. I realize now that’s not how it would be since they have to figure handicaps and such. I would still like them to come in first though. I’m not sure if this would affect the type of boat.
2 - I have asked her where The adventure is set. Hold your replies until I hear from her please.
