Finally got the boat out this weekend. 20 miles of unpaved roads with a trailer wasn't a good idea. If the boat didn't have dings before it sure does now. Day 1 didn't go so well wind was 15+ and I went over as soon as I launched so I decided to try the next day. Day 2 didn't start off so well. My sails fell off the boat while pulling into the launch area and then I forgot my sail bag when I went out. The wind however was perfect 7 mph with an occasional gust. The hobies that were out were flying passed me. So one major issue I encountered was never having enough hands. I have a mainsheet hook which is difficult to pull the line in and hold the tiller. Also difficult when tacking. I suppose I will need to upgrade this. Also will need to change the plastic piece on top of the mast that the halyard goes into. I think its missing one of the pins. Any suggestions for upgrades?
