Re: Husband fell in love with an 1978 Ericson Mark II 35.5

Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

It has been a while since I read the book, but it was my understanding that the male skipper/owner of the Westsail had been through several hurricanes already on that boat and knew what the boat was...

Re: Is it a crazy thought?

No. Be aware of your own limitations, the weather, the boat's needs and plan accordingly.
