Excellent boat, not just for newbies

Posted November 26, 2020 by Wol Euler 5 stars

This is a wonderful starter boat. It took me a while to figure everything out (because the HUD tells you what to do but not why to do it, people who sail in RL would have a big advantage here) but having got it all working I am enjoying it greatly. The only reason I can see why I might buy a "big boat" is to have a choice of social sitting/etc positions. Highly recommended. I also recomment the SL Sailing Academy school, this and other boating groups are full of friendly and helpful people.

Lovely boat but ...

Posted August 17, 2020 by Liv Simondsen 4 stars

I ownone of the most famous sailboats you see on the Second Seas, a 22 LTE, a Bandit 50, IF and Ushuaia but this is so much fun to sail and has nothing to envy to the others i mentioned but ...

... most of the times when i try to rezz it, it rezzess flawlessy but then when i sit and say "raise" a script error occours and the boat is pratically unusable, like if it was blocked and yes, i check if the scripts are enabled in the zone i am .. it happens even if rezz a new one 3-4-5 times but nothing ... it just frustrates me ... it's a pity but that few times it all worked good this boat was so fun! Another things i dont like is that you need to open a webpage to set the wind, and would be useful to have a hud to control sails and hiking... overall a fun boat to start, if you don't get quickly frustrated like me when you rezz it for the 5th time and get the same script error.
