Re: Hello from TX(noob/lurker)
Hey secret citizen,
I'm in Texas too. Jasper, with a boat on Sam Rayburn. I recently purchased my first sailboat which is a Pacific Seacraft Flicka. Yeah, I know, not a lake boat, slow, full keeled and all the other negative reasons, but I love it and wouldn't change my decision. I too hope to some day get down on the coast and do some cruising. Who knows, maybe I will, maybe I won't. But, I know I can.
So far, the best book I have read is "Sail & Rig Tuning" by Ivar Dedekam. Second on my list is "The International Marine Book of Sailing" by Robby Robinson. Of course I am a slow reader and have just started.
Good luck on your sailing venture. Keep us posted on what you decide.
