Re: Is sailboat ownership dying ( or at least sick)
^^^^ Both comments in the above post are great!!
Indeed, getting a sailboat underway, sailing it efficiently, getting back in the slip; all take skill and effort, as mentioned, to do it well...but THAT'S what makes it good!
Right now I'm teaching my son to sail. We rent a Hunter 18. First time out, he asked where the engine is; told him there is none. We leave, navigate the channel's turns, sail the bay, and return, all under sail. Told him this is how we had to do it with the Knockabouts at the Naval Academy. I LOVE it.
Everything always looks darkest before it goes completely to hell...
