Awesome! Thanks for those specs. It actually comes with a small outboard (Suzuki 2hp).

Then that is what you need to learn with, put up the sails, crank the motor, and you will look like an awesome sailor day one Hahaha.

I guess you found out about the motor when you called, as it is not listed in the CL add.

That is a great find.

Default Sailing & Fishing Old Guy

I have been sailing since 1960. Tried it and loved it. Raced on other peoples boats Long Beach, CA. Got my own 8', 13', 17', 20' 22' 25', 36' & 46'. I raced, cruised, won the Cal 25 Nationals in 1972 and many more races. I taught sailing at USC and here at the old WM on Barrancas, plus private classes on request. I began my seminars saying, " I don't care how good you think cruising is going to be - It is BETTER"


We bought our Cal 46 in 1982, raced and a few short cruises, then retired and sailed away from Long Beach May 1988, two years in Mexico, Costa Rica, and Panama. We then did the Panama Canal, roamed around a total of 14 years and discovered Bayou Chico.

I have been a fisherman all my life, so I always had a line trolling when I was offshore. Come over and see my Sailfish mount. PM for my number and/or address. My wife and I will teach you and yours about sailing, cruising and fishing from a sailboat. No charge, but I do love Yuengling.

Sounds like you have a great offer for learning to sail. I would still go for the ASA certifications including the ASA114 which is the coastal cat cert. It would be a fun week on a larger catamaran and the cost is about the same as a weeks vacation. You live aboard and meals are included. Other than sailing you will practice picking up moorings, docking and MOB drills on a twin screw boat. You will go through the drills of how to check out a boat when you charter one, and what to expect from your check out captain upon arrival for the charter. With your ASA cert. card there are no further questions regarding your ability to handle the boat you are chartering, meaning you can save time not having the demonstrate to the check out guy that you can operate the boat. I've heard that some Moorings locations around the world now require this, but, I am not sure about that one. Good luck and enjoy sailing.

I learned to "sail" at a summer camp on PNAS. Well, sorta, we were kids so as soon as we discovered how much fun it was to lay a sunfish over until it dipped the sail that's about all we did, then stood it back up and repeat

There is a book out there named "One Hand for yourself, one for the ship" written by a guy named Tristan Jones. I had the bug and read everything I could but this book really stands out. Really dry reading, but very much worth your time. Shame I never followed through with it but the itch is still there and I only have 3 years left till retirement so you just never know......
If it ever happens, I thinking of starting out with a McGregor 27
