Ahhh the first real sailboat I ever had. Sailed that thing all over the Keys and back and forth to the Bahamas
dozens of times back in the 70's until someone said I couldn't sail a boat
like that across the stream. With ten gallons of gas, an old 5hp Seagull, 12" of draft
up, a 48 quart cooler with dry ice, a porta potty, and sleeping bag. No Radar
, chart plotters, etc. except a cheap VHF
wired to an old car battery
, and a horn you had to blow yourself. No Coast Guard, DEA, Immigration, FWP, to deal with...EVER. Them were the days.
