Subject: Thanks

Ben, Thanks, at last someone who doesn't talk chocolate fireguards, or handbrakes for canoes.

Poole is my choice on account of its proximity to home, and in fact Coolcats is where I did my weekends course. Having sailed on that side of Poole and found it generally to my liking, I would hope to sail more there as opposed to within the harbour. I've been on the chain ferry many times - prsumably it is easy enough for a small cat to shoot the entrance if one needs to?(wind dependent of course).

£3000 is about my budget;having done some searches there appear to be some around with some good packages - trailer, launching trolley etc. I've seen a couple of 16s for £3000 both about 1988/89 vintage. Is that reasonable?

Sorry to bore you with trivia! Thanks again.
