Father to son, son to father, big boat, little boat, coastal or ocean crossing, I'm just glad we are all out there doing it to whatever capacity we are capable of. I taught my step-dad to sail and he now has a hobie one behind his lake house in N.H. He's alway's calling for maintanence/ sailing tips. I'm a huge advocate of the sailng community, and I want people to understand that it's not just a rich man's past time, but something any body can do. And with a small initial investment, it can be extremely affordable.
