Re: Success! Family turned from not liking sailing, to enjoying it.

NCcouple, I missed buying your RL by a couple of days. I am so pleased with this boat. Easy size to handle, but big enough to not be in each others face all the time. Moves good in light air, but...

Re: Kids think sailing is boring

Near the end of our last sail, I pushed my youngest in. Actually I pushed her in twice, once much earlier in the day. The first time it was a hard bump and she went over backwards. The second time,...

Re: Kids think sailing is boring

Andrew, you may have missed the link to the new thread at the top of this page. They loved sailing this time. Boat speed, sailing quality and mobility around the boat were all significant factors. We...

Re: Success! Family turned from not liking sailing, to enjoying it.

Vacation is not vacation unless there is a campfire. And yes, my kids ate S'mores, I've got a good video of my daughter enjoying the gooey mess.

Re: Success! Family turned from not liking sailing, to enjoying it.

Thanks for the advice. So I understand, the extra hole are only there to contain the loose sail, so they should be tied off loosely?

I made the assumption because while the OZ instructions for...

Re: Success! Family turned from not liking sailing, to enjoying it.

Success! Family turned from not liking sailing, to enjoying it.

4 years ago, I bought a small boat with the intention of getting back into sailing, as well as learning how to buy a boat and what to look for. The boat I bought was small, inexpensive and did not...

Re: VSC saved me from CG boarding

The problem is that there has not been a legal challenge when there has not been some sort of contraband or some other serious problem. I think the best way to prevent boardings is for every time you...

Re: Polars, PHRF, boat speed, boat shopping

That is an interesting way to do it. I'm curious how you encourage the trailer to go down into the water. Many launch ramps level out not too far after you are off the ramp. Not down hill enough for...

Re: sailing / passing another sailboat etiquette

Re: sailing / passing another sailboat etiquette

The water guns were a joke, but I would certainly condone such an activity wholeheartedly.

My kids have had little interest in sailing, however they have been playing Assassin's Creed a lot...

sailing / passing another sailboat etiquette

So I've always heard it stated that even when out cruising, if you are overtaking and passing another boat, that there is always a race going on. So that got me wondering, if on a hot summer day, you...

Re: Can't seem to buy a boat

Yep, actually I just checked my first email, which was in January of 2013. At that point there was an issue with the title - meaning the actual owner was not in the same state as the boat. (Son was...

Re: Polars, PHRF, boat speed, boat shopping

I was careless in my search for specs, and did not notice I looked at a Catalina 25, rather than the Capri 25.

I just went back and looked at the spec you listed, and noticed a fin keel. Is there...

Re: Polars, PHRF, boat speed, boat shopping

I have often thought removing the pontoons on my Hobie 14 of putting some old snowmobile skies on instead just to see what it would do out on the lake.

Re: Polars, PHRF, boat speed, boat shopping

Only thing that is ruling the 7.9 out for me is price tag. When I started looking, my budget was a little bigger than it is now. I keep saving money, but there is a leak in my boat fund. At the...

Re: Polars, PHRF, boat speed, boat shopping
