Re: Lifespan of Fiberglass Boats

Re: Water Heater: 5 or 6.5 Gallons?

Loved my Inlaws Ty. Sailed easily (if somewhat slow). Actually not that hard with reduced crew if set up with correctly. Would go for this if similar in other ways for reasons already stated.

I'd second the chrome book. Or go apple (I like the air, or an iPad air with a lifeproof case and a Bluetooth keyboard). Windows just way too buggy for me. I really hate rebooting.
