Re: S2 7.9

The tow vehicle won't be a problem, I've got a diesel F250. Yeah, when we got caught out like that the first thing we did was bring down the head sail, we were fortunate that the wind was blowing back towards the marina and not away at the time. We should have kept the mainsail up for a while longer and it likely wouldn't have been so bad motoring back. We did end up getting blown a bit past the entrance to the marina and had to motor into the wind a bit, now THAT wasn't fun! I will definitely ask about the ballast if I am looking at a converted inboard boat. Thanks!
