What's funner than a 17' Day Sailer

No offense, cuz I don't know, but if the FS won't work for him, why would the Lightning?

FJ:
No offense taken of course.
When I was a kid, say around 15 years old, I looked at those Flying Scots and I thought, "That can't be right. A boat shouldn't be shaped like a shovel." I find that hull form offensive, you know, kinda sort of. Lightnings look good and have sweet proportions.

Re: What's funner than a 17' Day Sailer

I'll go out on this limb to suggest a Thistle, they've been built and raced for a long time. Both the admiral and I started in our father's boats many years ago, fleets are shrinking out here a little but it's still a strong class. You can fly a spinnaker also, can't get much more fun than that.

Thistle is a great boat and one of the most uncomfortable boats you will ever sail on.
But they sail great.

Re: What's funner than a 17' Day Sailer

I did crew a couple years ago and after 4 races felt like someone had beat my transom with a 2X4.

cap:
I know the feeling well. I was born with a bony butt and it did not work on the Thistle.
Nice boat though.
Call it a personal problem.
