Re: Boat for Single-Handed

Sounds like my tentative plan was to follow in your foot steps going from a small boat up to a bigger one, Denise. I'll be training on a 30' boat, so we'll see how that feels.

I'd hate find...

Re: Boat for Single-Handed

Re: Boat for Single-Handed

Wow, lots of great responses. Thanks for all the helpful input.

Lots of votes for small boat/small lake, and lots more for big boat/big lake. Sounds like you can't go wrong either way. My...

Boat for Single-Handed

I'm finally getting around to sailing lessons this year and I'd like to follow that up with a boat purchase. While my wife tries to be a good sport about the whole sailing thing, she's clearly...

Sailguy40... Thanks for some good information about displacement. What you say makes perfect sense. I gather, though, that going from a 22' boat to a 25' or 27' means you've got a lot more boat to...

Thanks, John, for the good advice.

Do they still have the walleye come down on New Year's Eve in Port Clinton? It's a fun place with a lot of nice people, but that's about the silliest thing I've...

Caleb, I had a friend who owned and deeply loved his Tartan 27. Took me out in it once, and we had a great day. I don't see many for sale around here, so maybe people are hanging on to them.

Good thought on the yacht club. When the weather breaks I'll do some hanging out at the marina down the street where I'd like to dock a boat. It's about five minutes away.

It sounds like something...

Lake Erie is very much like an inland freshwater sea, and while I'm not an experienced sailor, I sure know how...
