So far, just in Shediac Bay but I would like to dry sail it out of Cap de Cocagne. Anyhow, the little engine will make it alot easier to zoom in & out of either marina. Oddly, some people get miffed when under sail alone in marinas.

I took sailing lessons at the Rothesay marina last summer with dinghies. We were always sailing in and out right by the expensive monoslugs.

I suppose if I had a 100K$ boat, I would not like people sailing by it.

Will you be required to care a fire extinguisher now that you have a gas motor on board?I like the idea of a small light weight motor.It sure will come in handy. :D

LOL! That was great! Reminds me of the time I capsized my 16 sailing solo in the fall some years ago. County Sheriff showed up but refused to help me because I wouldn't put my PFD on! I swear this is true! I was wearing a full-length wetsuit, but that didn't seem to impress him, so I told him to just F.O. A few minutes later, some sensible, sympathetic fishermen came over to assist me. Kinda makes you wonder what the point of any regulations are. I'd been treading water in the wetsuit for at least ten minutes before the Sheriff even showed up! I only wish he'd gotten close enough that I could have read his badge number so I could have reported him. Then again, I challenged him to come closer so I could read his damned badge number, so he was at least that smart. If I didn't have Adult ADHD, I'd have looked it up and reported him. (I use an electric trolling motor with my Cheata Mount, so maybe they'd expect me to carry baking soda in case of...???!!!) ;-)
