See Them In Action
Wanted: Sailing Without Hassle
I started SailboatsToGo LLC because I love sailing and I hate expense and hassle. When I get the impulse to be on the lake or bay under sail, I want to just go and be sailing within the hour. When I'm not sailing, I don't want mooring fees, trailer license fees, storage issues, maintenance issues etc. My personal sailing history went like this:
I looked at and rented Sunfish -- Too Heavy on land and it's strictly bathing-suit sailing, which is no good in early Spring or in Fall.
I owned a Super Snark. It was a blast. The Super Snark or Sunflower can be a great solution for portable sailing if you don't mind the lack of creature comforts and you have a way to store it under cover. See them here.
I built a plywood sailboat. Too heavy and it required a trailer, and annual maintenance, and was not comfortable.
I looked at and rented the Escape. Too heavy. Trailer required. Not comfortable, not dry.
1st Solution: Canoe Sailing
At last I bought a sail rig for my canoe. FABULOUS! Roomy, lightweight, dry, comfy, fun to sail. So great, that I wanted to bring the sail rig with me on vacations to the Caribbean. But there are no canoes to rent in the Caribbean.
So I tried a Sevylor sail rig on a Caravelle inflatable raft. Took it in my luggage on the airplane. GREAT CONCEPT, poor execution.
2nd Solution: Sailing Inflatables
So, I junked the Sevylor rig and started from scratch with the Sevylor hull, some parts from my canoe sail rig and some ingenuity. The resulting inflatable sailboat worked so well I was surprised, delighted and eager to share it with the world. SailboatsToGo was born, selling my rig for inflatable dinghies, as well as canoe and kayak sail rigs along with other boating accessories.
