Ours is a slip boat as well. Mast raising and lowering once a year is about all the fun my wife and I can enjoy together J. I would not want to go through the process of raising and lowering the mast along with the associated rigging very often. I think an acceptable alternative to a slip, if none is available, would be to store the boat on the trailer in a location where you can leave the mast rigged. Loading and unloading the boat without always re-rigging is a much more palatable task.
My 2 cents,
I am a newbie and looking at a nearby SJ23. I am curious about "how-to'launch" on a boat ramp. I looked at the archives. Did I miss any threads you can direct me to? I wonder how deep the ramp needs to be, how much trouble or ease it is to launch. Also, what is the lauch to sail comfort ratio. Such as, 1 launch for every 6 months, or 1 launch per week trip or 1 launch every day before cursing sets in. In other words, I don't have a permanent slip. I could anchor it for up to a week, I guess in a public waterway nearby and dingy over to it each day. I just can't determine if this is really a "slip" boat or not.
Do you Yahoo!?
