In Topic: Tell me why I should not buy a Waszp?

what country and coast are you on?



here on the west coast of the usa it is ridiculously hard to get an answer of when we will be able to physically see and trial one. deposit is in on one as well but the dates of when we can actually use one before final purchase has yet to be determined. that is my only beef. otherwise i am ready to rock and roll with one as well.



There is one at CalYC sitting behind a J70.  Looks like a good way to have your insides meet your outsides.

Just talked with friends in Jupiter Inlet Colony on the barrier island just north of the inlet. Wind has started to turn off shore, and storm center is way offshore, so they made the right choice to stay. We will for those further north.



That could have gone the wrong way so easily. They made a decision that turned out lucky for them in this instance.


See you at the U-TIki.

If you get a chance, take a look at the RS Tera.  My son did his first solo sailing in one last week, and I think that it's a great package.  It looks like a sailboat, has a self bailer in the cockpit, is indestructible, and is easy to setup and put away.  Our club has a fleet for beginning sailors, and I think that it's a great little boat.

Thanks for the review.  I'm about ready to dump my Laser stuff and make my next singlehanded purchase an RS Aero, too.  

In Topic: Schock 35 vs J35

Whichever boat had the toe rail ground off.  


Schock is better boat to tear up your skin when you slip and fall on its non-skid (all slip).
