F2 HORNET 154 with Awesome Board Bag

I'm selling a 154L f2 HornetI'm reducing my fleet.  Hopefully I don't regret selling this gem because it is so versatile.This board is in great condition!  Planes really quick, I've sailed it from a 5.5 up to a 8.0 and I would go larger if I had a bigger sail.  This board will get you moving on light wind to marginal days with great control.  It's capable and easy to sail, you can even bump and jump without the board losing control.  In all, this is a fun, light, stable, solid board.Located in…See More

"Just in case. I would like to mention if you don't mind crossing the border at the Detroit/Windsor tunnel our side can also be quite good on any North to NorEaster, Tecumseh /lakehore area,,  Westerlies and NorWesterlies tend to be gusty…"

"I certainly hope that a compromise can be reached so that we still have access to the windsurfing launch. Blue Lagoon is the ideal place around the Macomb County area for a good sail and I would not know where else to go on a north wind day that…"

"If Dan's guess is correct, then timing and slightly increased fees won't help much.  I'm wondering if Jason has had an more communications with them?  Jason?"

"It undoubtedly has to do with potential liability and insurance.  Damn lawyers!  The property owner can be sued if someone gets hurt on the property.  I am guessing that the property owner believes that the marina's insurance…"

"That is extremely unfortunate.  My guess is the owner is assuming some perceived liability whether real or not, that may apply for private property.  It would be good to understand the reasoning to try and address the issue head on.…"

"Agreed.  Very Unfortunate.   To clear any misunderstandings up, Blaz is leasing the marina.  Blaz does not own the marina.  The property owners have created guidelines for Blaz to follow.  Blaz agreed to follow the…"

"This is really a poor decision, considering that windsurfers, like Walt and Jeff and Harry did all the work (earth moving, grass seeding, fire pit, etc) to prepare the windsurfing launch."

Blue Lagoon Blues

I regret to inform everyone that the Blue Lagoon Marina has been taken over by Blaz Marine and they will not offer access to the lake for non-members.   If you choose to purchase a boat and rent a slip then you will have access to the lake. The Owner of the Marina has made the decision, not Blaz, and as of now, the decision seems final. I will work on them again in the summer and press for fall access.Take care and see you soon.JasonSee More
