Finally "Got ComPac"
« on: January 11, 2018, 05:01:38 AM »
After 40+ boating years I got smart and finally found all I ever needed was a ComPac 16. Slowly down sized from a 37 footer over the years. Yesterday paid $550 for my 16, nice shape with trailer and fresh sails, just missing tiller but I have one in the shed that will work.  I sail the Chesapeake Bay and have been for the last 30 years.  Sailing out of Cambridge off the Chop Tank.

Welcome, King of the World, to our Com-Pac family.  Sounds like you got a great deal on your 16.

Must've 'Chop Yanked' that right from under Bob23's prodigious probiscus.

Welcome indeed! Something about those 16's. On number two. Actually if ya don't mind sharing, what is the hull number on your 16. We have often wondered what happened to the one that taught us sailing 35 yeast ago!

Also there are some great gatherings that happen with us Compac types. There is one up in Joisey land this month and one off the Chesapeake next month. Come join!

Thanks Leonardo! Our first 16 was hull #1270, still wondering where she might be.  :)

Seriously you might wanna consider attending one of the upcoming events with this crazy group of sailors. The Jersey event is next weekend and the Chesapeake event is now slated for 2/17

The summer version of the Chesapeake event (ChesapeakeBayMidSummerGathering) has some great cruising grounds for a 16. Come check them out this winter, then come again with your 16 this summer. Can only promise that your reputation will permanently be compromised!
