Re: Advice On First Boat

You can also learn to sail on any stock windsurfer. The older ones are cheap and light. Just put that sucker on top of your car and go.

We don't need no stinking badges.

Re: Advice On First Boat

A hobie cat is a great place to start, and is a lot of fun no matter how much or how little sailing knowledge you have. Just don't go to big on the hobie cat as it can be a bear to right if you flip it over when you are alone.
