I just joined the group this a.m. No, BH and JN I didn't start the
group, I think CH must have. I am not as ditzy as we all thought
yesterday p.m. Whew, thats a relief.
Those of you that were at RYC Sat. for the delivery saw my Northern
Tools trailer. It seems to work very well. I did buy an extemder for
the ball so the tongue actually sits on the ball a couple of feet aft
of my bumper. This allowed me to pull the dolly forward so the CG is
right over the axle. WetaBob helped me check to make sure the amas
wouldn't hit on tight turns and we had 1' clearance.
Here is the trailer again:
The price has gone up $50.00 since I bought mine, but still relatively
inexpensive, and, free shipping. The ball extender cost $45 at a
local trailer hitch store in Ventura.
I sailed my Weta (or any Weta) for the first time yesterday. Unrolling
the screecher in 15 knots of wind while single handling was like being
shot out of a cannon. I was giggling like a little girl as I rode
that scalded ape. All we have to do is get some friends and
acquaintances out on these boats and we will build a fleet fast. Lets
get on it. I'm gonna start today by taking out my buddy I'm staying
with up here.
Much thanks to Bob, Dean, Jon, Scott, and Sean for making yesterday's
container unloading and boat assembly a pretty smooth, gratifying
We are gonna have fun Weta Swarm.
