Re: In Search of Lost Sailboats The New Yorker

That is so cool, John. Thanks for sharing (I look forward to my issue arriving in the mail today.)

We used to have Summers like that too. No local sailing association, though. Our family just used to have a little laser knock-off called an Arrow that we pootled around in. <Sigh>

Warmly,
LittleWing77

Re: In Search of Lost Sailboats The New Yorker

Last year we bought a 1968 sunfish with original mahogany rudder and daggerboard, original bronze hardware, original sail. I wonder how many families have enjoyed that boat, till the kids matured and lost interest, over the past fifty one years.
