A bucket would come in handy. The boat is self bailing so once we took on a little water, we just pulled the plug and it drained pretty quick. But, I definitely will be adding that to the checklist for future outings.

Great accounting. I'm new to sailing too and this inspires me to just get out there and give it a try. Exploding oil wells seem to be hampering our efforts right now though.

Bet you will be looking for a larger boat within a year! congrats on your first sail! Do you need to take lessons? I dunno... some people think you just have to. I do want to take a coastal course myself but inland.. Eh, I've been at it 8 yrs or so now.
You can find out more about rigging if you go to GlenL.com and look up the free online book " how to rig small boats "
