    Re: Truant wooden sailboat?

    Beach roller/float bags are available from the usual suspects (West, Defender, etc). If you ever have to pull the boat up on a beach it might help save that beautiful paint!

    I used teak on my last set, but I felt like I needed to have Brinks deliver the lumber. If you can find locust it might work well and be cheaper.
