  1. Delivery is not anticipated until January. I have been assured the rowing package will be available by then. Oars will be composite and mounted in the cockpit. I am awaiting engineer drawings of configurations. I was advised that the boom can be down but shifted to one side to row. I only need to row 200 yards to clear a narrow stone jetty I believe the rowing option can be retrofitted on prior deliveries. Check with Kirk Nash at Fulcrum. He responds immediately. Tillerman, I am humbled. A 9 rig on an Aero at 73 is impressive. I guess I chose the rocket over the Aer
  2. What rig do you sail on your Aero, 5 7 or 9? I really struggled with my decision but the rowing option on the Rocket closed the deal as I do most of my sailing from my dock but have to navigate a narrow canal to get to the lake. There is always the projected Interceptor package I ordered a Fulcrum Rocket today. So now Fulcrum has two on order for South Florida. As mentioned in my very first post last week, I am 70 years old and own a Hobie Adventure Island that I have docked behind my house. The Hobie is not a great light wind boat. It is a blast at 15 to 25 m

It is a blast at 15 to 25 mph winds. I am hoping the rocket will fill the times when the wind is not strong enough for the Hobie. The Rocket should prove to be an exciting addition. I hope to sail it in challenging conditions as well I did look at the RS Aero and Melges 14 but determined they would be too exciting for
  4. One additional consideration: I do sail solo 99% of the time, that’s why the rs neo was first choice until I read this thread.. GW
  5. My first sail ever was 3 adults on a Sunfish on Lake Seneca. The boat easily handled the weight as it was a windy day. I was hooked by the sport immediately. I have been a sailer now for 45 years. I am now 70 years old and own a Hobie Adventure Island. I love it, but only take it out if the winds are greater than 12 miles an hour. At 20mph it is a blast. At 10 miles per hour or lower, it is very boring. That fact was not mentioned in the above posts My first boat was a Chrysler Mutineer. What a great dinghy. I have had 6 other boats, none over 26 feet. I now live in florida on a large
