  1. NESC runs lessons right out of Fort Getty. On Hobie Waves and Open Bics, I think.
  2. @martin 'hoff - Sounds like soloing is unlikely @madboutcats - I’ve heard the pitchpoling thing a couple of times. Worse than a hobie 16? As to price, is it worth it at $1500?
  3. Looking for insight in the Nacra F18. Not the Infusion. The old design that predates that. There’s one for sale near me, and I’m wondering if it’s worth picking up as fun boat to blast around on. I’m interested in views on how easy/hard it is to sail one- or two-up. Not planning to race as I don’t think it’s competitive in the F18 class. thanks
  4. Barn Island boat ramp in Stonington CT. Gives you access to both Watch Hill RI and Stonington Borough. Both great short destination spots. Plus you can sail in protected Little Narragansett Bay, or pop out around Napatree point into Block Island Sound.
  5. Whatever happened to those folks who built that aluminum Colin Archer?
  6. I hope that boat has an alcohol fueled oven. Too soon?
  7. Semi, What is that design? Looks like a nice double-ender.
  8. You could shop for deck plates with an OD slightly less than the ID or the recess. Or if the deck plate OD is slightly too big, reduce its diameter using a variation on the technique in the video below. Bed the plate in the recess, and screw it down.
  9. Russell, There was a poptop version of the Presto 30. Never saw one in the flesh, so can’t speak to the design, or how it functioned. Might be worth a look. I think there was also some variations of the Cy Hamlin Amphibicon/Contraversy designs that had one.
  10. Might be a bit small, and not sure on light air performance, but there’s a Naiad 18 for sale in Rhode Island. Maybe bring it home to its Canadian roots. https://providence.craigslist.org/boa/d/east-greenwich-naiad-18-baby-nonsuch/7375418140.html
  11. A rare Naiad 18 https://providence.craigslist.org/boa/d/east-greenwich-naiad-18-baby-nonsuch/7375418140.html
  12. Free Cape Dory Typhoon north of Boston. Needs work but they are well regarded little boats. https://boston.craigslist.org/nos/boa/d/gloucester-sail-boat-free/7374902202.html
