Have wanted to sail since I was a little girl. Had a row boat as a teen and my happiest hours were spent on the water. Love Lake Michigan and spent some time last summer sailing with a female friend on a Pierson 32. I am 56, single, an artist, can cook! Mechanical mind... Don't get sea-sick that I know of!
Have traveled the world, but not on a sailboat, unfortunately! Did cruise the Bosporus, tho!
Want to find someone who has a nice sailboat and likes to sail, would like an extra hand and some company on Lake Michigan. I've only been on a Pierson and want to do some comparisons. I can be there in 30 minutes, and am free most Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays with a little advance warning.

"Sounds like your rigging may be in need of tuning?????
(Owned B43#19 for 10 years), Sailed from Mass to Tampa to Bahamas with it, great boat, no major issues at all. Boat has flat bottom basically so no need to put rails in water. I found it a very…"
"I’d also do a test using only the main. The more testing you do the more likely you’ll find the problem. I’d also check to see how much the leeward shrouds sag during all the tests. Let us know what you find. Good luck
