A very good, inexpensive book for new sailors!
Your post reminded me of the most often used book that I have in my sailing library.The title of the book is "Sailing for Dummies". It is available at Amazon.com...
Thanks to all of you who posted to this thread. It's great to be able to come this forum and have others share their experiences with those of us who are not as experienced in the "care and feeding" of the C-14.2! I would have never, ever thought that waxing the hull would induce drag :o

Roger, on my boat the cam cleat is mounted on the floor about 1/2 from the CB slot and about 8" forward of the barney post. It's not in the way at all. It lies directly under the hiking strap.
I'm trying really hard NOT to have a mental picture of that!

Let us know what the dealer says.
