I know the boat would sail better with a working jib
, but the hard part is if the wind picks up and your not expecting it. Changing a head
sail while getting bounced around isn't my idea of a fun time. Plus, the wife has a hard time controling the boat in seas if I'm on deck
. I think transitioning to a boat with wheel steering
with all the controls at the helm
for her would make thing easier and safer.
Bud, those Tashibas are nice boats, but a little out of my price
range. Plus, if I can stay away from the teak
decks I will. The cost is just too high if they need replacing. I don't want to be boat poor.
