Re: Wow how plans can change....in my mind at least!

The P165 is a fine boat, especially learning. There's no harm in sailing it for a season.

Don't discount the time, effort and money that it will require to find a new boat. You can find one...

Re: Lingering effect of Sandy

If there are 22,000 "missing" boats, I would expect that to be reflected in the average local slip/mooring fees. Has this happened?

Re: Docking under Sail - Beam reach approach

Controlling your power is one of the more difficult parts of a sail-only landing. Too much or too little and you have problems.

One thing that can make mainsheet control tricky is having the...

Re: Sailing single handed best size, not brand

I think this is going to depend somewhat on where and how you plan to operate the boat. Overall, at least for me, sailing is the easy part and docking/mooring is what produces stress.

As the boat...

Re: Tayana 37 vs Corbin 39

mr_f gets it.

Re: I got a sailboat for my birthday.

That's great!

I don't know much about your specific boat, but I've sailed similar boats. They're a lot of fun and you can expect to learn rapidly.

Don't worry too much about not knowing much...

I've recently moved to Chicago and I would like to find a good sailing opportunity for next year.

I don't own a boat of my own and would prefer to avoid the hassles that come with it. I'd like to...

Re: Costs of trucking a boat??

I'm going to echo the comments about $1/mile being impossible. That will cover the driver or the fuel, but not both. After fixed costs, profit, etc. you are probably looking at something closer to...

Re: Price of boats... Wow!!!

Boats kept on the water are not a practical home in many areas, for a variety of reasons:
* Not year-round. Slips/moorings are not available year-round, especially in colder climates. Furthermore,...
