    Jet-powered RIBs?

    While you sail the Opti with the child, good luck with that. Rib jet boats looked fun, we took one in a St. Pat's day parade on a trailer. I don't think it worked. All the pain in the ass of a jet ski no benefits expensive. Get a regular RIB outboard with prop guard and don't stick the old lady in a 17' Zodiak with a 90 hp that'll do 50+mph

    2019 Ford Mustang Bullit

    Should appeal to all those hillbillies that like to stick their arms down a catfish mouth to catch it. I also liked Eleanor.

    Daggerboard/Rudder Storage rack?

    Milk crate, if you want it off floor, mount it on self brackets, with or without plywood shelf

    Cheap, Fast Dinghy

    Wasn't there a young English child, "little bit", who designed and built his own dinghy? A few years ago. His father helped but, I think he did most of the work. Maybe get your mom onboard. She could always crew for you? Maybe, where you plan to sail? Our club sometimes gets rid of Sunfish, I have a friend selling a minifish smaller sunfish probably less than $500 maybe good for your size now. I am out in Westport let me know if you're interested

    duck and cover / Front Page

    We used to use tacks in late night prep school dorm raids against seniors in swanky Rhode Is. School. They were quite effective as we never were caught

    Buying a Beach Cat

    I would say buy one. I have built two tris and the first one a 33' One took 3 years. Do you have reliable crew or singlehanding? Just sold my Hobie Getaway, heavier rotomolded hulls recreational Sailing oriented, but was nice and I was able to keep it on the beach. Super cat 17 or maybe Nacra . Goodluck
