Congrats on the new Lady :D

My #3 son and I said the heck with 40% chance of rain. Its the first day of spring :!: and We were out with 10 to 20 winds with clouds all day, man are the Serria foot hills green. Had a great time and didn't break anything this time. We sailed for four hours and a rain band appeared on the horizon. Needles to say after pushing to unstep the mast, and put everything away we drove west towards home. with the sun in our eyes. darn shame. Huh.

again congrats on the new 20

1973 H-16 sail # 11578

Congrats on your new boat!

Just as an aside, the H16 was introduced in 1970 - by your sail number I'm guessing you have a 1972 or 1973. :oops:

Anyway... hi! :D

That sounds like a good plan...
Thats about 1 hour west of us...
Thanks JaimeZX for dating the boat..
I think it was around 1974 I bought the boat..
and it was well worn when I got the boat...
