Re: In a 9'6" sailboat, I've circumnavigated,...
I've watched your simple sailing conversion to your tender. You get huge credit for getting it sailing without the hassle(that stops most conversions) of adding a rudder, mast step and most of all, a daggerboard slot and box.
That's a small tender to start with - about 8' - because(as you've explained), you need to car top it easily. I watched the video with that in mind.
This is the first I watched the video(which is fantastic, as all your video work is - top notch) to see how your conversion performs.
Ok, I'm impressed with how she sails. I still would like to see how it goes with a daggerboard and rudder. And for trim, I'd like to see it without the outboard sinking the stern.
Does this experiment make you think you might pick up a larger tender that would fit the two of you and the dog for more sailing off the big boat?
Thank you for the video.
