Good morning. I sail an AMF Sunbird 16 in Cherokee Lake in Jefferson City TN. Today the wind is around 6 kts and would be a perfect sailing day except for the fact its only 16 degrees presently!

I have had the Sunbird (The Lusty Slogger) since 2009. Although I have been sailing for over 50 years I have not owned a large number of boats and most have been under 16 feet. I started sailing the forerunner to the Sunflower and was a boat I purchased for $75.00 from Speigels Catalog Store. The biggest boat I have ever owned was a Bayliner Buccaneer 22.

I enjoy the Sunbird since its small enough to singlehand but quite stable and roomy. I could overnight on it if I wanted to be stiff and sore in the morning! At 69 years of age that doesn't appeal to me. The other thing I like about the boat is that it is now in my basement and I am getting it ready for next spring.

Cheers to all.

Welcome to SailNet. My land home is in NE TN. Visited Jefferson City many moons ago when the kids were checking out colleges. Nice area.
