So where in MN are you located. I lived in the Twin Cities for 28 years. Started sailing there too. Lots of good die hard MN sailors.
Also, is there a forum section for small sail boats?
Well we thought about it and in the end there is always a boat bigger than any one here owns. So in relative terms we all sail small boats. Some are just bigger than others. Having a small boat is no less sailing than a bigger boat. Even those with large boats still recall
the fun of a small one. I sure do. You should know we all would like to do it again.
As far as line goes you may find that thin good line isn't much more than thick Walmart rope
. You don't need that much. It's the Ultra Violet light that destroys line. Salt water
isn't a friendly but you won't be seeing much salt
in your water. Enjoy yourself! Sailing season in MN is about to begin!
Welcome to the forum and if you look around the forum sections and try to find the right category you'll be fine. We will help you get things right. we can move messages to where they belong. We have magic tools for such things. We can not perform marriages or restore hair - so don't ask. Other than that most sailing topics are fair game
