Strictly Sail, St. Pete, FL Nov 2006

We put away our Hobie and had Gambler, our old quarterhorse, tow it into a barn around Oct. 2006. We decided to go to the St. Pete Strictly Sail Boat show and look at big cruising boats and were intrigued by the Gemini Catamaran. We hadn't even given a thought to the Telstar and didn't even look at it. In fact, I remember poo pooing it when Lisa mentioned we should give it a looksie. On the plane ride home a week later, I was looking at Sail magazine and realized that it was trailerable. That meant we could easily set it up and launch it in 5 or 10 minutes just like our Hobie! (We found out quite quickly that just is not the case).
