I thoroughly enjoyed the video, the tunes, and the journey. The lake where I sail in East Texas is tiny compared to the great big ocean but man am I inspired to go sailing! Thanks for sharing! You are not only a daring sailor but a dynamite storyteller too.
I bought a used Sunfish 3 weeks ago and the there's been little to no wind for the last 3 weekends down here in NE Texas. Yesterday and today 2-3 kts. Last couple of weekends 5 knots was tops. I sailed a bit the last two weekends to get familiar with the boat but the wind was very...
I managed to get my deck drain open with repeated application of WD-40. I hear water sloshing when I move the boat but I can't seem to manage to tip the boat in a way that causes anything to come out of the hole. Is the water trapped somehow? Is this common? Any suggestions on what to do?
So what is the 6 cent solution to seeing which way the wind is blowing? Yarn tied to the top of the mast? Holding up a wet finger? I ask as the guy who spent $3.99 on velcro sheet hangers instead of using duct tape.
