The Snark is a glorified cooler lid with a dagger board, rudder
, and sail! It makes you work it and right now that is just fine since I am a complete beginner. I am also disabled with a very limited play budget
. Luckily, I don't need fancy. The Snark is teaching me the seat of the pants things I need to know. The Snark will have to do for now unless I get the little bass tracker lined out again. The Snark rig would self destruct if used on it very much.
When it is time, I will get a bigger boat straightened out. I have a puffer that needs the registration
staightened out, and an older boat in need of repair or a new hull
. Sooner or later I will find a way to repair it, or a hull
will become available. I hope it is repairing the 16 footer, because it's "1950ish Chesapeake Bay" working boat design is still the most pleasing to me of any I have seen up close. The simple two jib sheets
, a main sheet, and the rudder
kind of boat I want. It still has canvas
Anyway, I am rambling again.
The Snark is it unless I get the chance to visit at the one of the clubs for now!
