I am looking at what small sailboat to buy.
Here are some factors to consider:
1) Live near Memphis Tn, so only a small man-made lake within 1 hour drive
2) one-person manning, but would like to take an adult or child guest
3) easily rigged
4) easy on back and knees
5) good in light wind or...
I am planning to sail a laser 2 single handed. Do you guys know if a single person who weights about 65 kilos is heavy enough to right a laser 2 that capsized and turned turtle in a ˜15 knots wind? If yes, is this easy/hard?
I've searched high and low and I can't find anyone who has experienced righting
a capsized Walker Bay rigid. It seems like it would be almost impossible to get back
into it without the stabilizing tubes. Creative work-around maybe ? : )
