$25 for a Force 5 is a stupdendous deal w/o sails. I sold mine last year with trailer and everything for $1200. Great boat to learn to sail.

Paint for Telstar

Hey SD,

What do you recommend for painting the Telstar? Did you do it yourself? Was it on the trailer? What type of paint did you use?

Any info would be appreciated.


Thanks!

I beg to differ!

I think she adds a great deal of resources to the topic. I'm really looking forward to more instructional videos like this.

Next: Jackie demonstrates how to overhaul a carburetor. :)

My recommendation is to get a Telstar and have them measure the boat with your tape measure, if you get my drift.

Why does the Coast Guard allow 48 hours to report a death? Seems kind of odd. "Well, it's been a day and a half since we lost Bob. I guess we better call the Coast Guard."

Cool Sailing Dog, how rough of weather conditions have you taken your Telstar out?

SD What is the most you have gotten your T2 to heel? What is the worst weather you have gone out in where you thought to yourself, "this might not have been such a good idea."

I think your options are as follows:

Keep your current boat and deal with the increased pressure from the wife by starting to drink heavily and hanging out in the garage more often.
