Minifish Pickin Tennessee "Smoky" and "Bandit"

We wanted to try out some Minifish, to se whether we liked the lighter weight hull and smaller sail plan. Found a great deal on one in Kingsport and another nearby in Knoxville, fun road trip to pick them up.

Skipper took Bandit out for a test sail, she liked how it would get up on the chine and then stay there. Easy to lift, cockpit is a little tight.

Smoky's outhaul broke, so she wasn't out long.

Bandit had a small drain hole, not stock, so we enlarged it to add a bailer.
