stuck on the hard .

the last 2 years i have sailed all winter long .
i live in southern louisiana so its not that bad .

this year i havent sailed since dec. the boat ramp at the club is closed because its in bad shape and needs repairs ,the club is having trouble getting someone
willing to come out and do it.

so right now i am bringing back to life a hobie 16 that has sat in a back yard for 20 years without going into the water. hope to enter the "slip to ship" race in may 26 miles round trip to ship island

really hope to get the spirit back in the water soon ,

I feel your pain....our lake is so low we can't get out of the cove onto the main body of water. She's still floating, but barely.

Re: stuck on the hard .

well the good news is they have actually started the work on the ramp so im sure that it will not be to much longer before we can use it again .

and i did get to send my outboard in for maintance , i was just about at the point i was going to take down the mast and redo everything , still should probally do that .

the hobie cat is looking good though have replaced everything on the trailer but the frame and the rollers . got a brand new tramp i am waiting to install .

Re: stuck on the hard .

See, if you lived and sailed someplace where they had Winter, you could just hose down the ramp, let the ice build up, and there ya go, she's all re-surfaced until the spring thaw.

I'm afraid to ask what kind of ramp can't be fixed with Sakrete or blacktop patch.

Re: stuck on the hard .

when they were digging out the marina they had our boat ramp all framed up to pour concrete the next day well in the middle of the night the entrance way to the marina gave way and filled the marina with water .
