Re: How do you use your boat


I have an O'day 35, a basic cruiser / racer from the mid 80's. I primarily day sail in the Long Island sound. I spend a few weekends aboard during the season and every once in a while I'll spend a week aboard. I have traveled 80 miles east to Block Island, 80 miles west to New York city and many places in between.

I have no plans to sail in the open ocean, no desire to live aboard a boat, and I don't plan on sailing in severe weather. I have been caught in 30+ kt squalls and I know my boat can handle it but most of my sailing allows me to pick a good weather window.
