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.
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.
