Green Sailor

Hello Everyone,

My family and I are getting ready to move from the mountains of Colorado to Camano Island WA in January. In preparation for a change of recreation, I have already purchased a 13' dingy sloop and trailer from someone in Anacortes. I have seriously sailed only once before, and I figure this will be an inexpensive way for me to learn while I'm still very dangerous. This boat, with HID # FSEK00570476, was manufactured in 1976 by Freedom Seaker Pontoons. Does anyone have any information on this company or the boats that it once produced? Just curious, as I think I got a good deal on the boat in any case.

Thanks,

Will

Welcome to the area, altho right now, it probably looks more like Colorado!

There are a few places close to you that offer lessons, look north to Anacortes for probably the closest place, Everett to the south.

Welcome to the crazy world of Sail net too!
