Shanedennis I wish I had understood from the beginning that the boats would have no lighting
. I did resolve that by purchasing
my own lights. your're right they are cheap
and friendly. While I don't understand why they couldn't throw a battery
on the charger
the night before I arrived I do wish they had just told me I couldn't expect lights instead of banning me. Actually it wasn't even a light issue that cost my rental privileges but the leaking waste in the cabin
Rebelheart Good advices! We have learned a little something each outing and added it to our sailing gear
Let'sgetsailing the only reason I returned is they themselves assured me they could deliver what I was looking for. I didn't do the same thing over thinking things would change, I was told they would. Recognizing that it probably wouldn't I purchased lighting
to insure we would be safe. it was the leaking port a potty that cost me my rental privileges. And you are right. It is not a cheap
hobby. Probably I bit off more than I can chew but what can I do at this point. heh maybe it's just a midlife crisis and I find out I'm not really a sailor after all. God I hope that's not the case!
Zeehag I know the other place expects you back before dark. That is specifically why we wanted to work with this company. They advertised we could have it overnight. Again, I don't want it overnight but we switched to this company for the ability to stay out after dark.
dochip I didn't include the companies name because it is my understanding CF would prefer I not. I think I read something about this specifically not being a place to air grievances with vendors. I have learned so much already on here the last thing I want to do is get banned here as I was from the yacht club /chuckle if you would like to know feel free to message me.
Part of me would like to smear their name all over the internet
as I feel all they had to do was be honest with me about what I could expect. I had already decided it was worth providing my own lighting. I have most of the summer before my boat is finally done. Longer if I don't work much harder than I am at the moment.. We had intended to rent again for my wife's birthday later this month. I really wish this hadn't blown up the way it did. Sailing is a very new obsession for me. The only way to learn is by being out on the water
. I didn't plan on buying
a boat project
but /shrug here I am and was hoping for the best of both worlds. The ability to sail while I work on Precious.
Celestialsailor You are right! that is exactly what I need to do!
