Every Once in a While Nothing Goes Wrong.

We get a lot of threads on what went wrong, and how to fix it. It seems every time I go out on the water, at least one thing breaks, or requires action to avoid calamity.

But last weekend, The only problem I had was finding a ramp deep enough to launch. Once I found one, and got the boat in the water, every thing went smoothly.

The sails went up no problems. The rigging worked. I spent the weekend sailing around the bay. Anchored in a quiet corner with a small danforth that came with the boat. It didn't drag. Was easy to pull up.

Spent the next day sailing, stinkpotters, gave me plenty of room. The area waterways were packed solid, you could almost walk across the lake by hopping from boat to boat. No one cut me off, or was rude.

We did get waked a couple of times, but the boat rocked a great deal less than what I expected from a small trailer boat.

The fractional rig tacks like a dream, and sails smoothly to wind. All in all a great weekend.

Things don't go wrong more often that they do for me. Otherwise I would stop going out!!!
stop blowing smoke up my rear, blow it at the sails instead
