This is my first post on here, and I'm new at everything sailing, actually.
My grandfather sailed on Lake Erie for roughly 40+ years on various boats he owned. Unfortunately, he sold his last boat before I was old enough to get interested in sailing. That being said, I took sailing lessons last summer and caught the sailing bug.... hard.
After learning in Aqua Finns and Laser Picos, the whole rental (and being unable to rent from Oct-Apr) thing got really old fast. I went in search of my own boat, but had specific needs.
I wanted something that could haul two, was reasonably quick, small, light, and cheap. After searching for a while, I decided on something around the 14ft range, but needed something that would be reasonably dry for year-round usage.
That being said, I ended up with a great first boat- a 1967 Advance CFJ
(I'm having some issues finding much rigging info on these older hulls... ANY help would be greatly appreciated! I know some things are definitely not right)
Let the adventure begin....
