Re: [bolger] Re: Building Nina - Design #196
- I anticipate launching much as the beach cats do. The circumstances will depend on the launch site itself and the surf conditions so I can't really give a definitive answer.
But yes, your point is taken, it won't always be easy and there will be times when it will be better just to stay on the beach.
First though, I have to finish the boat.

More questions: How do you imagine, "going through
the surf"? Walking/swimming the boat out past the
breakers and then climbing in? Padle power? Pushing
the boat with a pole? [what is that called?]
What size surf do you expect to cross?
I find it hard to imagine sailing out through the
surf, but maybe...
The prevailing wind on my 'surf' beach is from
offshore, so that would require a closewinded
sail and a diagonal course.
