Re: Sailnet Members from around the world check-in please.

Hi, my name's Greg and I'm looking to buy a sailing dinghy. My current ride is an Old Town Tripper 17 (a white-water cargo canoe).

About 20 to 30 years ago I used to live and work aboard an old wooden Halibut schooner, long lining for ground fish off the USA's Olympic Peninsula. I also fished Salmon in Bristol Bay & the San Juan Islands. When I started teaching high school I sailed an old Yankee 30, a couple of Beetle Cats, and some other old woodies, taking our students out from the Center for Wooden Boats on Lake Union late afternoons. We also crewed on the Schooner Adventuress.

Finally bought myself a canoe five years ago and have enjoyed it a lot, mostly on lakes. I've moved to about 12 minutes from Long Island Sound, though, and need something visible and seaworthy that helps me use the wind instead of fight it.

Sailed and rowed a lot of wooden dinghies last weekend at the Wooden Boat Show in Mystic. Also been sailing Hunter 140s at Longshore Sailing School in Westport.

I need to get a boat that I can single hand on Long Island Sound so I can sail every day. I weigh about 165 & am lean & strong with good mobility & balance. I'm drawn to boats like the CL-16, that seem not only responsive but seaworthy and durable as well & can handle passengers & cargo. But I don't know for sure what to get because I haven't sailed 'em. Barnegat Sloop? Albacore? Old wooden Catboat?

I've already enjoyed a lot of reading on here, so thanks everybody. I'm glad to be aboard.

Re: Sailnet Members from around the world check-in please.

Tripper17, How big is big enough for Puget sound and the surrounding waters???
I have wanted to trailer my smaller boat, a Hunter 23 out that area. I am concerned that the currents are faster than she can overcome.

Fighting mother nature is'nt the brightest course. Tide book will tell you when ,. Suddenly you're doing 8 knots in the right direction. I sailed 22 tonnes of gaffer sans engine many miles on this coast.Tide was my friend.
