newbie e end lake ontario
« on: May 02, 2019, 03:56:26 PM »
hi gang,
anyone in my neck’o’water willing to lure me into the fold via a sail?—longstanding interest in this class & this spring/summer could be prime purchase time. so ~nearby used boats also of interest.

i’m 62, lifelong athlete, lately sailing trimarans (weta to f24).

thanks,
chris

We have 3 in Sarnia you are welcome to come this way. I will be putting my boat together hopefully next weekend. Just need it to stop raining so that I can get out to the farmers barn where the boat is :) I would need a mud buggy right now :)

Probably not helpful, but I'm in NYC and the U20 is just south of it.  Specifically, in Perth Amboy, NJ.

Hi icdb,

I'm in western lake O.  I purchased my U20 last fall and I'm hoping to get it in the water within a month or so after getting some work done on it.
