Re: Newbie seeks salty dog(s) for some sage advice

Thanks Smack - that is the other way to go... spend 1500 on something in rugged condition and learn to dock properly by..."feel"

I do have a brother in law who is an accomplished national racer, but he doesn't like it when I get Brie on on his tiller. (translation... we have a very different idea of what sailing should be.)

This is why we are doing circles. I get all ready to sign up for the class and then say "wait a minute - that is the price of a 27 footer (sans outboard, moldy cushions). I could spend the $$ to put a reliable screw on her and be sailing tomorrow."

I like your perspective. What to do, what to do!
