the Interior Of A Boat

  • This is a Laser Pico being rigged for sailing. It is one of the standard training dinghies at Island Barn. This is handy for taking a look at the interior.

    The Laser Pico is a great learning boat as the cockpit is not that crowded due to only a few control lines. Keeping the lines tidy is a useful discipline while sailing the boat, as tripping over ropes and falling overboard is pretty much a guaranteed to hinder your ablitiy to manouver the boat. This especially applies to the painter (right at the front of the foredeck) which you won't actually use until you come to the shore again. This should be stowed neatly in a manner that will not come undone if you capsize, but can be got to easily if necessary.
