That boat has a ton of capacity for a 16-footer!
Yes! She sails big. When we were exiting the jetty on our way out we encountered an area with some pretty rough 4 footers. She kept her nose down and plowed/ banged right thru them. It does not feel at all like a 16 foot boat

Where are the pictures!!! Your crew needs to always have a camera ready for these moments!! Live action shots! All them others look like poses. :lol:

A couple new additions that will contribute greatly to my enjoyment of Tipsy. First, I bought this nice little used truck. I haven’t been able to put tipsy in the water as often as I’d like because up to this point we’ve only had one vehicle. Now I have wings. Secondly I bought this swivel block with cam cleat and it will be attached to the mast just under the boom. this will allow me to raise and lower the sail with the halyard from the cockpit if I choose and lock it in place with a tug. The way I have things rigged now you have to pull down on the halyard to raise the saiI then tie off on a cleat that is on the mast. I will remove the cleat and replace it with this swivel block and cam cleat👍😀

Congratulations on the new Tipsy hauler! that will make it easier to go when you want to.
I am no sailor but I can see where the new swivel block/cleat will make things better for controlling the sail.

Hi Fuzz!!!! Thanks buddy👍 I’ve been looking for a vehicle for months- patience finally paid off. She is a 2005 & has 100k on her- got her for 5k. Super clean inside and out. My first truck.

Yes , that new item will make single handed sailing a breeze

So now you are a sailor and a trucker?!!

Congrates on the new ride!
