Re: Buying our first sailboat

Very sorry - I missread the post about fitting in the back of the pickup. Neither of those will.

Re: Buying our first sailboat

Really capsizing is a relatively rare event,
during my first year of sailing it happened only three times,
two of which were mandatory components of sailing course,
and the third was while I was practicing sailing in high winds of 17+knots on a lazer.

Re: Buying our first sailboat

Even if you don't capsize dingy's can be wet, and that sounds like it will be cold up where you are from. I have a sunfish. Its a blast to sail, I paid almost nothing for it used on Craigslist. I have only capsized once and that had more to do with not being able to get the sail down when I was done sailing.

always in decline-never hitting bottom
