yankee yachts sea horse 24 I think.

swing keel, ( half a meter minimum draft)
But depth or marinas are not the issue, playing the "meeting code" game while modifying an existing dock to harbor a sailboat is the trouble.

I have to run to Rogers tomorrow and speak with them, but I think its gonna work out.

Marinas typically HATE sailboats they don't buy their overpriced fuel in quantities that make money. So they charge them through the nose for slips typically.

I have a little 14' Buccaneer sailboat too, its like a lazer class. Its fun to take out on the smaller lakes and takes very little time to setup and go.

I have looked at a few hobie cats in the last few years, they were all rotted to shit and overpriced.

I will shortly be in the market for a 14' flatbottom with a 9.9, I figure every teenaged boy needs one of those and a motorcycle.

PLus, he has pretty much outgrown the chick magnet, his 10' flatbottom boat.

And it's no fun at all. I got the bike so I could go out and have fun on it. And it's cheap, tires are a hundred bucks or so once a year, gas is nothing in this little bike (70 MPG, sometimes 80, 60 If I ride like like there's no tomorrow), and insurance is covered by a months worth of change I let build up in my car. And the bike doesn't need much in the way of maintenance either, and what it does I'll handle myself.

Point is this, why try to baby something that's meant to be rode hard. And all to save less money a year than you spend on haircuts? Seems silly to me! Ride hard! Burn through tires! And have fun trying new ones out to see what lasts longest!

And dang you guys post a lot in no time flat!
I don't know sounds like a Hardley rider if you're only changing tires once a year, or like Ted.
But smooth doesn't have to mean slow. I just means most times you maintain a lot higher speed through the corner then excess braking into and excess throttle after the corner like a few Busa's I've followed. One even required dual sporting through the corner in the ditch because I unknowingly didn't think someone with a 150 hp bike would be slowing THAT much for a corner and I didn't feel like wasting that much brake pad or rubber.

Not that big a deal, I can knock it out in 10 minutes, just bring the wheel and tire.
