PostForum: Eastern and Central USA & Canada   Posted: Fri Jul 14, 2017 4:51 pm   Subject: Moving: parting with light-air stuff, located in NJ/NYC area
In the next week, I'd like to offload my Kona One, Tabou Rocket 145, 520 mast, MauiSails 9.5 sail, and possibly my MauiSails carbon formula boom.

The items are located in a storage facility in Cl ...

The nice thing about the "sail size" metric is that it sort of compensates for different sailor weights. That is, although there are tons of variables, as others have pointed out, I find th ...

All kinds of options, then.
For slightly more headroom (would be nice for changing in the back), maybe look into some of those small, euro-type rigs, like the small version of the Transit, or Nissa ...

You forgot to include the most important data point: number of passengers (if any) you need to be able to accommodate.
If you're going solo, that opens up a whole world of small vehicles, a laydown ...

Interesting thread. I too have a hard time getting through the shore break when the wind is dead onshore. One can bear off for speed, but that's of course counterproductive to getting outside. So o ...

Great post, boardsurfr.
