Newbie will be on Lake Havasu for a week
There is probably a better place to post this, but the crew forum didn't seem appropriate. My ancient Newport 16' and I will be at Lake Havasu from (tentatively) May 19th to 24th. My fiancee has exhausted her vacation time, so I will likely be alone.
This is my fifth time taking my boat out, and though I have no trouble getting from point A to point B, the previous four outings pretty much exhaust my sailing experience. I have read a couple of sailing and maintenance books, and taught college courses in physics, so I am not totally lost, but if there happen to be any older wiser sailnetters in the area that would not mind spending a couple of hours on my boat showing me the finer points, informally appraising its condition, and offering suggestions on improvements both to my sailing and the boat, I would happily share a few a beers.
I know it will be hot. I have been living in Tucson for a while, and don't care.
Additionally, any suggestions as to which ramp to use (for cost efficiency) would be more than welcome. I will also be running my laptop off my deep cycle in the evenings to try to get some work done while I am out, and having a marina to recharge at after about three nights would be wonderful.
Thanks in advance for any feedback.
