AnnHerrick Posted December 2, 2019 Share Posted December 2, 2019 (edited) I bought this really nice new sailboat, and read the manual, then set out sailing it. The instructions told me if I lowered the sails the motor would start, but if it did I could not motor anywhere with it. Also I could not cross sim lines, the screen would shudder and I'd just come to a stop. Also, I would get blown into land unpredictably, and I know this particular boat works for others, so now I'm wondering if it might not work for me because I'm on a Mac. The builder came and showed me how his works perfectly for him, but I while I was on board with him his boat would vanish, leaving me in the air, but he didn't see that I guess. I did. At one point I was about 100 yards off port floating in the air in a sitting position going along with the boat that way. Weird! At one point while sailing it just blew into land at high speed and there was nothing I could do to control it, but then it was back out on the water magically again. It also sank a couple times but came right back up. Also, I could not rez it at Blake sea at all, that was not allowed, even though I used the LM's the builder sent me. I've not had a good time with this boat. So might all this be because I'm on a Mac and the boat was built for Windows users?
