P Connor - moving to the dark side?

Peter, my Mari (about the same age) cost me $600 with an unregistered trailer.

Last weekend I sailed the Mannering Park Open Cat regatta in a very new, very fast foam maricat and showed without a doubt that my racing successes in Careels is entirely down to Katrina - I came a poor 5th!

My $600 jobbie is in pretty good condition albeit a bit on the heavy side for racing, however they represent so much bang for the buck.

It is quite easy to overcapitalise, new sail $1300, new tramp $250 but without those, just for having fun or racing in the traffic they are unbeatable - buggers to tack though!
