You might as well going out to buy your inflatable lifejacket, sailing gloves and Maui Jims,

Thanks Jim, you live quite the life. I actually looked at getting my Private Cert. for flying as well, but it was too much time and $ for my lifestyle, I did get my son going though, he's 17 and has 10 hours under his belt, I told him to do it before life gets in the way. Sailing, for me, is doable! So I'm gonna do it, I'll find a way. It helps I can bike ride to the Port of Rochester, and I want to take advantage of all that Lake Ontario, the Great Lakes have to offer. Going a little stri crazy now, I used to ski but not any longer, so now I'm doing everything I can to prepare for April launch. Haven't bought the life jackets yet, but I di buy some charts last night and fingerless sailing gloves will be next.

Hopefully my situation improves so I can launch my boat on Ontario again.

No worries, I'll even join you on Owasco lake. I have a Honda Odyssey with a tow package (no transmission cooler though). I can tow about 3,200 safely if you ever need a tow and your s/v isn't too big, I haven't checked out your profile yet, I will now. If you're doing any maintenance on the boat, call me as well, I want to get involved!

Re: "Sure I'll walk the dog, honey!"

oops, just saw that you have the S/V in your sig LOL. I'm learning! I like the Hunters, but I can't tow that LOL.

I read a blog last year about a young man from Toronto that took a Hunter '26 or similar from Toronto to the Bahamas and back.

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.

Much appreciated Brad. I have started the YC thing, went to my first Genesee YC meeting last week, had a funny situation there, I wrote about it here:

80 footer versus a J/80 Newbie Story!

I'll be checking out others as well and of course anything you find I'm game! I'll keep in touch.

Re: "Sure I'll walk the dog, honey!"

I used to get pissed off at all the idiots that go down the road weaving from lane to lane cutting other drivers off, now I realize they are in sail boat land and are just tacking. A word of warning though....don't hit the auto pilot so you can pee out the window.

Re: "Sure I'll walk the dog, honey!"

LOL a J/80 thats priceless!

I was at the CNY Boat show earlier and there wasn't much at all concerning sailboats and I didn't see anything from Rochester area not even RCR & Navy Point (maybe I just missed them).

Boat show was the same in Rochester, NY, little to nothing concerning sailing or sailboats. From what I see on other posts, the major cities or Ports of Call have their own Sailing Expos that are amazing but nothing comes up this way. Thankfully, there is a large network of sailors around my area so I should be able to get some sailing in this year and learn as much as I can.

Re: "Sure I'll walk the dog, honey!"

O how I miss Rochester. Went to RIT and lived in Henrietta for a few years. Don't miss the long winters but its nice to be so close to the thousand islands and the lake.

I constantly constantly constantly pay attention to wind and weather...thats good practice whether boating or not.

Tacking the car...different strokes for different folks I guess.

We all get it differently. Wait till you get a boat. It's all over then. Total loss of sanity.

Buy some cheap golf clubs, hide your sailig gear in the bottom og the bag, and tell them you'll be out golfing for the day. Everybody's happy.
