Re: The Joys and Pitfalls of Buying a New Boat - Part 1

one may master a sloop, then you become avid at it, then a gaff rig falls into there lap, and it seems as if one has no clue on anything, until you learn by sailing it over and over, but
, then sail a junk rig, and then its like "what the...?,lol then sail a cat rig and the physics, counteracts the last ones, not to mention all the combinations of customized rigging,
, then when one transfers to a multihull, that moves 15 knots against a 10 knot wind, they will still scratch there heads, you see it has takin me 25 years, at it every day, and a dozen or so boats later, and i am still, a neophyte, learning never ends
one boat at a time, one system at a time, and only one project at a time!
