I loved mine too but sold it when I moved. A bigger boat would be great. To say I've been thinking about cruising is somewhat misleading. Obsessing would be more accurate. So much to learn - motors, wiring, navigation.

Welcome to the message board!

I love my Phantom, and still sail it 2 weeks every year on Lake Wallenpaupack. Sunfishes are great too, but Phantom made some very significant improvements to make the cockpit more comfortable and the rigging more durable. Boats like Phantom and Sunfish give you immediate feedback when you make a mistake, and therefore are the best way to learn. You'll find a bigger boat to be an easy transition.

I second Angelfish's welcome! Always nice to have more girls on board! Helps us keep those pesky boys in line...yeah right!
I've found SN to be a great source of info! Ask lots of questions, it helps us all!

I learned on Sunfish also...on Lake Michigan. I nearly froze to death!

Thanks for the elucidation! In word play, it always helps to know the players.
