RE: bimini question




No, not as a rule. I keep my boat at a slip at the lake. I bring her home
occasionally (to the neighbors' chagrin) to clean her up and perform
maintenance. There are many different places to sail within a 5-hour drive
from here, such as the Gulf coast and the Georgia/South Carolina coasts.  I
usually take 3 or 4 road trips per year.

Do you guys actually trailer your boat to the water for sailing?
