Months of obsessive research and fantasizing about sailing has ended – mostly. A 12 foot long 1979 AMF Puffer sits in my yard. It’s been painted, varnished, and good sails, and a new centerboard, rudder, motor mount and lines. Cost = $1200.00. It holds 450 lbs, and has a main sail and jib. The trailer is a 1970s rig reconditioned with springs, shocks, and a winch that holds the front down, making tying it down for travel very easy.
