New owner for an older CP19
« on: September 17, 2017, 09:47:59 PM »
Hi,
My name is Adam, and I just got an older Com-Pac 19. I've spent the last few years sailing Hobie Adventure Island kayaks all over the Northern Chesapeake Bay. Lots of fun, but I wanted to move up the learning curve, and also get a boat that I could sail with friends. Looking forward to checking out all the great info here, and hopefully meeting any other owners in my area.

welcome
now some folks are going to ask you for $$
and then put you under brite lites to find out
personal questions...e.g. fav color, fav adult beverage, fave song, etc
tell them something, then the $ charge will be less
(p.s. based on Godel's Theorem they will never know
if u r telling the truth or an alt-truth)
welcome aboard
rem this Compac only has one hull...so less screaming

Hey Adam! Good news, your new friend Ameysails has just volunteered to pay for your initiation fee of $5000 clams.  BOB23 will reach out and "touch" him shortly.

Until then we are living from foot to mouth...

Adam,

Welcome aboard.  Do you know you hull number?  I need to learn mine, but the key is to know what model of 19 you have.  Big difference is if you have a bowsprit or not.  My 19 does.  i have only had her for 2 sailing seasons, and she has sailed better that I hoped.

I am trying not to drill any new holes, so I am getting creative about leading lines to where I can reach them, and setting up boat for solo sailing.  This is great group for advice, but I am still validating my fixes, so be careful...

Regrards,

Welcome aboard! I was in your shoes last fall and I learned a ton from this site. The search function is great, as most thing have been done several times so you should be able to find an answer pretty quickly. The 19 is a little tank so it should handle that bay chop well, just don't plan on breaking an speed records.

Hence, the name Terrapin, it came from previous owner, and was perfect fit, when we added Irish flourish!

Finbar Beagle,
Hull #21, it's a 1982, before they added the bowsprit.

Thanks Adam.  I am on way for solo sail today and need to take photo of recent "solo" upgrades to send to my Admiral, who is FEMA deployed for possibly rest of our sailing season.  I hope to post soon.
