    Buying a moth

    Sailing boats of locals would be a good idea, unfortunately I’ve never seen one on lake I sail at. So I think based on your advice I will let that be for now... However, I was looking at some moths yesterday and found some cheap offers, but I don’t know what to think of them. #1 https://www.facebook.com/groups/399647313568164/permalink/722662727933286/?sale_post_id=722662727933286 #2 https://www.facebook.com/groups/399647313568164/permalink/747424692123756/?sale_post_id=747424692123756 #3 https://www.facebook.com/groups/399647313568164/permalink/707189746147251/?sale_post_id=707189746147251 #4 https://www.facebook.com/groups/399647313568164/permalink/658139794385580/?sale_post_id=658139794385580 what do you think?

    Buying a moth

    Hey, I am currently sailing on a Laser and a Seascape 18. Now I want to buy a fast singlehanded foiling dinghy, just to have some fun and learn a bit about foiling. Now I don't want to spend a lot of money (<5000$). My original idea was to buy a cheap used moth, probably an older homebuilt one and gradually upgrade it with newer components (I am willing to spend some time in the workshop). Now that I´ve read a bit more on how to best get started with moth sailing, I am not sure whether this is the brightest of all of my ideas. Another option would be buying an A-Cat and upgrading it with foils later. Now as far as I know foils on A-Cats don't unfold their real potential cause of the class rule so its a foiler but not entirely and of course a moth is way easier to get from a to b via road. I have considered stuff like the UFO or WASZP (last one is a little too expensive) but I don't have a problem with things being complicating and having to figure stuff out, I would like a bit of a challenge and think that for example an UFO would get boring to quickly. So what are your thoughts? Is 5000$ to little for what I want and should I just wait until I have more to spend? What about Moth vs A-Cat? Is there anything else out there that could be interesting for me? Looking forward to good answers! Ben
