Re: Honest costs of ownership in CA, plus any other tips for a newbe

Well the Santa Annas are an entirely new topic, when they start up this fall I will start a thread on it with some photos of wind speeds and boat speeds. They are dangerous but as long as you don't venture too far off-shore it can be very exciting. I am not talking about the 75-100 knots stuff just below 50kts. Any way it is a chance to get the storm sails out and have some fun without 12-18 foot swells. As far as boat speed in those conditions you just try to keep the boat around 6kts, anything higher starts to stress my old boat out, she is over 30 now and we don't beat her up much any more.
