new guy here. long time lurker
i sailed a lot as a kid, mainly up and down the cape on anything i could get a hold of. usually cats, some day sailers.
they thing is, 20 years later, i don't remember how to sail, if i ever did as a kid!
all the physics of it, but can't remember the mechanics of it, and certainly don't recall
the rules of the road.
so, i have two questions for you all as i begin my journey back onto the water
1- can one enjoy sailing on the hudson
river (we leave near bear mountain) or should i consider a stink potter? is there really enough wind
to sail down to nyc
for the day and get back?
2- is the hunter
27 a good starter boat? i'm thinking about one of the 1980s ones...
and of course, any recommendations about good places to berth and store (i live up too steep a hill to think about trailering her home in winter
and of anyone selling a boat which needs little to no work to be seaworthy
thanks- all stupid questions, i know, but i'm just starting to get my head
