    I've been thinking about learning how to sail. There is a community boating program in Lawrence that offers very affordable lessons.

    Do it. Sailing is great and will teach you more about boating then anything else can. Race and you will find out how hard it is to be a good sailor (kind of like skiing). Grew up sailing before going power. Power boating is a recreation, sailing is a sport.

    Was out in San Francisco back in 13 or 14 when they were gearing up for the last Americus Cup (sp?). IMO the modern cats have kind of ruined it, but they are extremely fast. Go back to a mono hull and may the best man (or woman) win. JMO.

    This is my father & brother in the 1st video. I'm the son (not grandson) & got out of that business over 30 years ago. I still help out, even run the boat on occasion (yes I'm a licensed captain hense my screen name steamboat). This is how I spend a portion of my off season from skiing.





    This video taken just this past Thurs.

    Incredible Fathers Day out on the NH/ME Seacoast with my wife and 2 boys!
    Days like this make the occasional aggravation/cost of owning a boat all worth it!
