I rented a Windrider 16. The trip away from the dock was a blast, I was laughing hooting and hollering all the way downwind. Trying to get back up the bay to the rental place was another story. I think I was tacking 95 degrees to the wind. I really wish I had a paddle for that leg.Iirc, the windrider 16 mainsail has a sleeve for the mast and is loose foot
So so to be honest.How are your woodworking skills?
My nicest piece of equipment is a 70s era tablesaw it is the center of my workshop.It's all old equipment though (70's)?
Not everything comes in 50 ft sizes with big price tags and Uber maintainence , that’s why.Why?
I went canoeing during graduation senior week in college. Had to leave on a bus at 6am to get to some god forsaken river, to paddle through some light rapids all day, just to come home. I did not want to go and had barely gotten to sleep at 1am the night before, from other graduation festivities. My girlfriend at the time insisted.
I think we made it about 30 minutes down the river, capsized and lost all the beer we brought with us. I never went back. I ended up marrying that girlfriend. The marriage capsized too.
Nothing good comes with a canoe.
