    Sailing in Charleston, SC

    You may not want to drive this far but if you don't find anything in Charleston, I have family in Beaufort and I could tell you a few sites there.

    Rudder, Daggerboard, 2 practice sails

    Do you mean fiberglass/gel has been patched? I see skuff marks in the photo but hard to tell.

    Rudder, Daggerboard, 2 practice sails

    What will you take for the daggerboard? This is for a 1980 Laser. I'm considering a new one from Intensity Sails for $180. What is estimated shipping to Indiana?

    What about the rudder foil? See this picture of a Laser kit...

    Just read the whole ad....

    That is a great description. Let me see, sales & marketing or a creative writing professor?

    'Heaving to' in a Sunfish

    Were they talking about the English Channel? That's over a mile deep!

    'Heaving to' in a Sunfish

    Reading this wikipedia artcile, it doesn't seem it's possible to do this for boats with less than 2 sails? Tequila was always more likely to cause me to heave than vodka.

    60th Anniversary Sunfish sail

    Nice design... whimsical. I scene one might see underwater when turtled! Perhaps that's why no lifejackets? ... they're so serious afterall.

    What to wear for winter sailing?

    Am I the only one that thinks that this is a somewhat strange thread?

    Ronstan Tiller Extension ("Battlestick") - 33"

    I just measured my tiller extensions. The Ash is 24" long, the aluminum 32". Why would all of Intensity's offerings be in the 48" ballpark? Is there a real advantage to 48" long or does it just get in the way?
