  • Do what ever you want but it would be nice if we could ...

    try to be nice and patient to new sailors (old and dumb sailors too), and not beat them up because they have overlooked some of the steps involved. even if it is in a manual.

    there are a billion moving parts to our cats, and it can be overwhelming and/or hard to remember them all. I know i have forgotten stuff (like a jib sail at home, or boom, or how i rigged my spin after a season away, or which rudder is for port, etc.)

    MANY people buy beach cats and realize it's too complex and not worth it, and just don't give it enough effort.

    So as Santa would say,
    "Be nice! "

  • Touche' - from someone that is also a relative "newbie" (just 3 or so years) - I appreciate the grace as I am constantly humbled by how much I don't know. I'm just now learning what I don't know, whereas before I didn't even know that...

    Still - it's fun, and I enjoy the learning and ancillary parts of sailing as much as the too seldom times i actually get to.

    I was the same way 22 years ago when i got my h16
    I couldn't get enough sailing, forums, movies, books, sailor talk around a fire, or bar, or jail cell (Kidding on that one)
  • I got my first cat, a Sea Spray 15 in 1980 and since then I've sailed a good many of the so called "legacy boats" and learned a lot of things the hard way. The point I'm getting to is that no matter how many years of experience one has, there's always a way to do things easier and more efficiently. It's part of the fun.

  • Quote did I miss something


    There’s a user that frequently requests help solving a problem that’s addressed in the manual for their boat. The forum has repeatedly offered them help but they keep ignoring the advice but coming back for more help. I think it’s wearing thin on a few.
  • Regardless of subject, every forum's got a couple.
