Smile Re: Sailing in the Northeast; need some advice!

Wow, thanks for all of the great advice and the quick responses! I hadn't even looked at the Barnegat area but that opens up a whole new venue to check out for sure... I suppose that since we are...

Re: Going up the mast on a trailerable sailboat?

Just an update to my post a while back... ended up borrowing a bosun chair from a neighbor, and used the jib/main halyards to go up the stick (lost my spinnaker halyard). The boat was tied off to...

Re: Calling All Laguna Pop Top Owners

I am the proud owner of a Laguna Windrose 22' as well and the pop-top is one of my favorite features! Our boat came with two poles that are inserted into the angled "receptacles" on the deck on...

Re: Backing up (or not)

Great thread; just to chime in, I have a 22' with a little 6hp outboard hung on the transom off-center with the transom-hung rudder. When I am backing out of my slip, I have found that if I keep the...

Re: Going up the mast on a trailerable sailboat?

Ladder? Now where is the fun in that? I guess I could combine the two options and put on a harness attached to the halyard as a backup safety in case the ladder falls or I lose my balance. And...

Re: Going up the mast on a trailerable sailboat?

Hudsonian, so true; I should have thought of that earlier; I am sure that there is a common bulb in all of the fixtures, but it is definitely something that I need to check into further.. ...

Re: Going up the mast on a trailerable sailboat?

Denise, I appreciate your comments and the link. I do know how to drop the mast (at least I know how it is described in the manual), but I was just seeing what my options were and taking into...

Re: Bicycle on Sailboat

I have done a bit of research on the folding bikes; they look pretty feasible; I would assume that the most difficult challenge besides storage is just getting them out of the boat and in to the...

Re: Where are the younger people?

Haha, sounds very familiar; I had a little bit of sailing experience before we took the classes, but my wife had never stepped foot on a sailboat; rather only bass boats with her family growing up. ...

Re: Going up the mast on a trailerable sailboat?

All great points; again, thanks for the detailed input; although it sounds pretty innocuous the way you put it Dubbinchris, if the two weights were to "change places," would be a pretty major...

Re: From Dinghy Sailor to Cruising

Just wanted to say that although it was expensive, my wife and I took a 5-day ASA course in San Diego where we got to live aboard a 31-ish Beneteau and get private lessons each day in the bay. We...

Re: Going up the mast on a trailerable sailboat?

Re: Trailerable lake boat

I purchased a 22' Windrose for sailing in my local lake last year, and I have nothing but good things to say about the swing keel and ease of sailing this little sloop. It came with all of the sails...

Re: Where are the younger people?

meboater,

Thanks for the quick and thoughtful response! I had a feeling that it would support my weight (I only weigh about 165 lbs) but I guess I am just trying to figure out the safest and...

Re: How did you get your start in sailing?

I was bit by the sailing bug as a kid during a trip with some family and friends in the BVI; took a 5-day ASA class in San Diego in my 30's and bought a small and inexpensive weekender about a year...

Hello all, I have been an avid reader of the forum, but this is my first post, so forgive me if I botched this thread!
