FYI, Weeks Yacht Yard in Patchogue, NY makes a pretty nice little DN.

We also sail South Bay Scooters on Great South Bay. It is kind of a spoon-shaped hull with steel runners on the bottom--developed because the brackish water doesn't freeze solid in spots so it can kind of "skim" over a water patch. Steering is with the sails.

Hope the snow clears for you.

Merry Christmas.

Thumbs up New member intro

I am a 61 year old retired male livingon the FL panhandle Springs and Falls and in New England Summers and Winters. I have shared partnerships in an Ericson 30 and a Jay 32 in CT and now am looking to do some primarily day saing near Fort Walton Beach and perhaps some light cruising. I will be looking to share or purchase a boat to be docked in Fort Walton Beach. I am looking in the 10 to 30K price range and am looking for reccomendations. In a few years after selling my house in Ct I will be able to upgrade. I really enjoyed the ericson 30 and prefer a boat in the 27-32 foot range. I will need a shallow draft and will need to sail under a 49 foot bridge. Does anyone have any suggestions. I will be looking to get a boat in Aprilr May 2011 in Fl.
