Landlocked in Kentucky

Howdy. I'm getting into sailing (taking the local classes) and am fully entrenched in analysis paralysis on the boat. I'm sure I'll be asking a lot of questions about catamarans over the next few months, so bear with me.

Re: Landlocked in Kentucky

Welcome to CF.
What part of KY are you? I'm in the military stationed at Fort Campbell, KY, on the boarder with TN.

Plenty around on the forum to research for any questions.

Re: Landlocked in Kentucky

Aloha and welcome aboard!
The wife and I should be making a trip to Lexington again this year if all goes well. Not much big water around there but still could be some fun on your lakes and the Ohio River.
I've been sailing since '72 and have sailed on just a couple of club catamarans so can't really help you on that subject.

Re: Landlocked in Kentucky

I'm in Louisville, we have an active sailing scene on the Ohio, but I'm probably going to wait out the winter before I bite on a boat. That gives me plenty of time to figure out how to buy a catamaran without getting too ruined by repairs.

Re: Landlocked in Kentucky

Well, you're not alone. I am also in Louisville, refinishing our Globe 38. Drop down any weekend. You can't miss the boat, we are next to the Dollar General on Coral Ridge Rd. Brooks. 1/2 mi from exit 121 I65

Hey, I learned all about that sort of thing living not too far from where you are now. It's not unknown in those parts. Just curious about this fellows name. Could be a good name for the right boat/skipper, after all sailing IS magic!

That's awesome... Nothing intrigues me more than history, including the evolution and varied religions... Well... maybe blue water does...
I think the name and your theory is fantastic...

ANYWAY... Maybe down South a bit... Here, it's the Land O' Churches! Growing up in CA, I've never experienced anything like it... Honestly... I'll seriously wager that in a 20 mile radius, there's 300+... Sunday morning here looks like Planet of the Apes... Or maybe Rapture...

DON'T even think about Walmart, or Lunch after 11:00 though!

edit: Where not too far???
