I hope it doesn't happen to ya. I had to get fancy with the mainsail and boom to get back, that and the paddle. Good thing it was downwind to the ramp or my homemade spin wouldn't have worked.

yotphix, 56 footer has a big stick. Good thing nobody was under it.

Yep, we were lucky! Oddly enough it came done quite gently, I suppose because of all the sail area. Glad you came out all right with yours. We had to give ours to neptune.

Your story makes me think that replacing pins, since they're cheap, and relatively easy to replace, might be a good spring habit to get into. I find that any task I assign myself which forces me to spend time looking at things is a good idea because I see things I wouldn't otherwise. (If that makes any sense!)

CC, man they really hammered you over on the other site. Not a very nice thing to do, it sucks when your boat breaks.

Yeah, well, they'll get over it. I'll still be out tearing it up while they argue about this and that behind their keyboards. I love folks like that when I blow by 'em in my cheapa$$ed little Mac and they can't figure out how.

CharlieCobra,
Sorry but I have become confused. What other board are we talking about?
Thanks,

Hey Charlie, don't let'em get to ya,, like you said, these little boats are cheap to fix, and haulazz in light wind, and I can park her in my front yard . I sure like mine, but then the only thing I have to compare it to is the Sunfish.

Where are we going, and why am I in this handbasket?

Not being up on net etiquette, is it common to post a topic in three (that I know of) different places?
All the best,

I spent a week once working in the Dominican Republic and the only thing I had to sail there was a sunfish...I sailed it every day from 4 to 7 pm....paid the Hotel guy that looked after the beach rentals, to have ot ready for me every day...It was fun. Nothing wrong with them..

AFAIK, that is generally considered to be somewhat rude to do on the same forum... Posting on three different forums, like sailnet, sA and LSD is generally acceptable.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
