Re: Trailer sailing in New Orleans
Pontchartrain is a pretty good size body of water. Aside from the various wildlife that can get you (alligators and water moccasins and the likes) the weather down there can change on you in a heart beat and get real nasty, real fast. You are definitely better off with some sort of engine, even if it is an electric trolling motor c-clamped to your stern to get you off the lake if the weather turns on you. I didn't live in NO, but 10 years boating in East LA (eastern part of lower Alabama) has given me plenty of scares.
Just a thought if you wanted to keep your current boat.
