  1. Monterrey. If I drag my Weta out to Ca. Monterrey Bay, the aquarium and as much of that peninsula as possible. Who wants to lead a California Weta safari, how much will it cost, and who do I send a check to? When?
  2. FL Alligators?!?! and pythons oh my! For those actually interested, I have over nighted on my Weta. I waited for perfect weather, particularly wind, launched midday, at about 2:00 a.m. I got sleepy, ran up on the beach and just curled up on the tramp. Slept 'til sunrise and continued on my way. A small box holds a stove, sleep pad, tarp, lantern, flashlight, bug net and sundry items. I didn't use any of it, just pulled a beach towel over my head to keep my ears warm and slept in my foulies. If you're tired, you'll sleep. This was during the full moon phase which coincides with extre
  3. How long is too long? In Florida, from Boca Grande (Punta Gorda/Port Charlotte) to Flamingo ranger station at the very tip of the peninsula there are unlimited beaches and coves to pull into for the night. Of course the mosquitoes would carry you away at most times of the year so winter would be the best time for a Florida Raid.
  4. I like this. We should have one, maybe move it around every year so people can see new places.

  9. Dude, welcome aboard. I will not extend the traditional greeting, which is: "fuck off and show me your wife's tits." But rest assured some one will so be prepared.
  10. Nor I! Worse I'm afraid we'll stumble into another shit storm with such comparisons. The weta is a very nice niche boat, as such it fulfills a variety of needs and desires. High performance ain't one of them! I've overnighted on the Weta, something I never did with any of my cats, and plan some longer excursion type events. Imo the weta's strong points are: ease of operation, particularly rigging and recovery stability affordable price good all round performance good load carrying capacity for the single hander very small foot print for storing and traveling.
