Re: Hello from S. Padre Island, Tx

I'm not but people around me are. Been some pretty good storms coming through here, but I've only seen a couple light showers. Corpus and the areas a little east of me have seen a lot more of it. ...

Hello from S. Padre Island, Tx

Well technically Harlingen, but that's where I'll be sailing. My dad was an avid sailer in the 80s, mostly on Harpoons and a Stiletto cat. I have memories of it a little, but I got interested in...

Re: Examples of good sailing dinghys for shallow areas?

Lol. I can buy 16s for 500-1000 and 18s for 2-2.5k pretty frequently. But the problem is setting them up solo. I'm 6'3" but a pretty anemic 170 lbs. I had a Nacro 5.0 for awhile but sold it...

Re: Examples of good sailing dinghys for shallow areas?

Re: American 14.6 questions

I really appreciate the advice. I am kind of on my own here. I called the local yacht club and they really only deal with boats larger than 25'. I'm sure I can find someone that has some...

Re: American 14.6 questions

Thank you for the reply and the clarification.

The boat drafts about 3 and a half feet. When I'm sailing and get into water shallower than that what do I do? Let the board drag the bottom a...

American 14.6 questions

I'm getting ready to purchase my 3rd sailboat. My first was a fixer upper that never made it to the water. My 2nd was a Nacra 5.0 that I sailed a handful of times; I had a lot of trouble sailing it...
