As a young child I remember sailing with my Dad on his wooden hand made board boat on the beaches of Honolulu Hawaii. Many years later as an adult I sailed with my Dad occasionally on a fiberglass sunfish style boat on Lake of the Pines in North East Texas. From those days long ago until December 25th 1985 all my sailing was limited to an occasional sunfish style boat or a small Hobbie Cat.
December 25th 1985 was the first time I actually owned a sail boat.
Many hours were spent sailing Sarasota Bay, occasionally slipping out the pass and into the Gulf of Mexico. The Gulf of Mexico excursions were always close to shore. I never had a motor for the boat, retuning to the dock by dark was a must. For the most part there were few miss-adventures. Unfortunately, there are few photographs of this time.
Eventually the decision was made to move north to Pensacola Florida. I left the boat at the sailing squadron for a year eventually selling her to a club member.
There are only a few "adventures" of note with this boat.
