Now that I have actually floated, sailed, and rowed the Skerry I was wondering where the safety limits were. I sail in Lake Ontario and the water can get really rough. I am quite timid and certainly would not invite a swim in the lake at this time of the year but I was wondering if you had guidelines.
Since you have sailed the Skerry and have compared it to other boats you have a basis of comparison. I understand you cannot say that the boat is safe with 2 meter waves and 20 kilometer winds but any suggestions?
I have only sailed in a Wayfairer before and they can take alot of rough water. I also have alot of experience with canoes of every ilk.
Does this make sense? I guess I am asking what are the danger signs and what is just plain exciting water resonably safe if I handle the boat sensibly?
