Re: Designs for old codgers
i guess i don't really understand...
being one who is chronologically advancing w/ a few limitations imposed by said age as well as some abuse to my body administered by the front bumper of an automobile and the lingering effects thereof... I AM AT A LOSS trying to understand those of you who are advocating a sailing canoe no matter how easy the rig is FOR AN OLD CODGER
in all seriousness i am looking at Michael Storer's OZ-GOOSE
kinda like another element of MAN'S desired elements of existence UGLY BUTT USEFULL...
simple, stable & doesn't $et you back too much
the rig can be reduced for up to & including breezes in the 25 knot range
with full sail it wil move nicely in light breezes
it can be sailed in skinny water making it possible to sail from a beach
the stable nature allows safe entry from a dock/pier
the elements of the rig are light enough to allow a CODGER to rig one solo
they can be transported in the back of a pickup or on a small trailer
and they can be stored on their side taking up a minimum of precious space
I GUESS I REALLY DON'T UNDERSTAND
