Man do you have that right! It seems to me that the whole daysailing seen, at least in Michigan has gone by by. It's not just the Hobie parts problem, that's just one pot hole in my road, but it's a problem through out the water ways.
Where are the young sailers, where are the dealer support events, where are the events, and who outside our little world even knows whats goning on?
Boy I better change my med's, sorry about the venting.
I'll give an example:
I park my 18ft.(ship) on Traverse city EastBay beach during our summer season ( about two weekends
) and during the summer I am always happy and abit shocked to here from people on the beach that they have never sailed before, or wow can that boat(ship) go fast how do you do that? Or better yet what kind of boat is that?
I give people rides and they are at first a little scared but then they love it ( don't tell my insurance carrier) , my hope is that the will turn on to this sailing thing, or at least have some fun without fuel burning motors. well heres hoping.
It's not all about racing is it?
