SailinSolo here
Greetings all, names Keith P. hailing from sw New Hampshire. Roughly 42N x 72W. I'm retrofitting an 1981 AMF Alcort Puffer for literal single handed sailing. I lost my arm 3 years ago and want to sail angry again. By that I mean as much as possibly as well as I can. So far the work is going great, down to painting and reinstalling the hardware. If all goes well, I plan on repeating the process for others with disabilities. There are plenty of old daysailers and sunfish laying around on the hard growing mold that could be put to good use.

That's it from me, looking forward to picking up some good nuggets.

Good on you for taking up the challenge. There was a man in the 1800's who had no hands, and yet managed to single-hand across the Atlantic. BEST WISHES in meeting your goal...........i2f
