All suggestions welcome.
Hi Ericka. My nephew is wheelchair bound and as keen a sailor as me, what we want to do dictates larg3ly what equipment
we grab. Acinghegrabs his trimaran
because he sailsrings aound usinhis "mean" machine. However when it comes to cruising We will end up on one of the LARGER Yachts and his wheelchair is pined to the rail at whatever station he is assigned. As with most poeple who have handicqps the best thing is to crew a situation in which their particular skills wereneeded and active. SO WITH Gary my nephew he loved either helming,or,shouting trims. Then all the crew did exqctly what,they qsk3d. That made rg crew happy abd the boat happy. So my adviseis,ti get,your,husbqnd,on,to any boat that,he an prqctice the skills he,enjoies.
