My first boat is the one I still have: a Sunfish. I've been camping with it several times, been in huge waves (3-10' on my last week-long trip around Isle Royale), and it seems to be more capable than I ever imagined. I've met several sailors who say that was their first boat as well. If just made me wonder how many started with a sunfish. Here's my channel link if anyone is interested in the Sunfish videos, including the 150 mile Isle Royale trip.
