Sorry if I sounded a little terse in the reply - it's Monday and I hadn't had my caffiene injection yet!
I noticed you're in Lincoln Park - where do you sail? The Detroit Fleet is having a fun sail day on May 7 at Cass Lake and you're welcome to join us.
Go to http://www.fleet276.com
for more info on the fleet.
No problem at all, I understand the acffine thing.
Two years ago I sailed mainly out at Kent Lake, but I lived in canton then. My wife and I bought the house in LP last year, and my poor boat sat on the trailer all season. The house was in need of many repairs so that came first.
Then, I crew on a J/24 out of Port Huron and that came before my own boat. But not this year. I plan to use the Hobie regularly. In fact, I plan on pulling it out to our place in Mass for a week, or down to the Gulf, out of Bonita Beach, FL. Either way, its going on vacation with me and will be used this year. I have some repairs to complete, which is what led me here.
Thanks for the invite, I am not sure I will be ready by then, but if I am, I would love to come out. I grew up in West Bloomfield and did the majority of my sailing on Orchard Lake as a teen. And we used to go to the beach on Cass, Koliva (sp) Park, or something like that. Its where all the Finn's hang out, or at least it was years ago.
In any case, I will check out the fleet link in the meantime.
