Re: "Sure I'll walk the dog, honey!"
I love my 260, she's a Winnebago with wings! I spent a month on Lake Ontario with her and also a month on Lake Michigan with her as well. I think if I were to attempt a trip to the islands I would opt for a larger boat! LOL
You should head on down to the local Yacht Clubs with same offer (helping with maintenance in return for a ride and knowledge) I bet you will be pleasantly surprised by the response you get. Not that I wouldn't mind taking you out but simple logistics would suggest local resources are the better option. The CNY Boat show is beginning today in Syracuse. I'm going to try and go tonight, I'll keep an eye out for Rochester area sailing associations and report back.
oops, just saw that you have the S/V in your sig LOL. I'm learning! I like the Hunters. I read a blog last year about a young man from Toronto that took a Hunter 26 from Toronto to the Bahamas and back.
