Wrapping Up

  1. Had the pleasure of taking a day trip aboard the 1918 Surprise from Camden, Maine recently and learned a lot about sailing -- mostly that it is a lot of work! The Captain and his crew member (Kale) were great. They told us all about Penobscot Bay and how the boat runs. Fun! But I won't be running out to purchase a sailboat any time soon!

  2. You can always get a Marshall Sanderling catboat. 18 footer and only one sail to deal with. 2 berths and a head in it. Once you raise the sail, that's it - maybe a bit tweaking with the mainsheet. No jib to sheet in during tacks. The 1918 Surprise is not representative of the work for most sailboats - that's a hard sailboat to sail...
