Re: finally got my Seasprite home!

thank you all. I noticed that quite a few people stared when towing her home. Out of all the boats I saw on trailers (and I saw quite a few going south from Canada) mine was the only sailboat.

Going to get her hull and topsides done this summer/fall and then work on below decks come winter. Hopefully she will be more shipshape come next spring.

I think I need a blog.. anybody got an suggestions where to go for one?

I would guess they were staring to see if the trailer is actually able to keep the boat from tipping over on the curves... sometimes I wonder about that too when watching keelboats being moved on trailers...
