Well, when that time gets close you can contact me on this site. I'm not sure how much longer I'll be in this area, but a check back should let you know.

For other news, went out on the water...

I'll admit there is a lot going on on the deck, and around the cockpit. But, I can bring cushions for those that don't like being a winch cover.

I've posted a few times, but this is the first I've been looking for a crew. I've tried single handing and I'm just not comfortable at that level yet, so:

I didn't tie in that day, but I will be in the future.

As for the j/24 tipping and swamping. I do keep the lockers locked, and the hatches closed. And, you may find this humorous... but I've...

I'm a fan of sailkote. It made the sliding hatch over the companionway so much friendlier. No more grunting and squealing, just push with a finger.

Believe it or not, I visualize leaving the slip under sail, but I'm nowhere near confident enough to try it yet. This motor does rotate for reverse, which has some fun side effects, like dragging...

I don't want it that bad. I'll be happy with a few dollars of rope for the time being. This isn't a boat I'll be taking super long distances, and I'm on a tight budget.

Yes, but it isn't very convenient when the main sheet is between me and the tiller. Reaching around while tacking is awkward, and doing it while gibing might be foolish. Or I'm using it wrong :)
