Does anyone know if the Poly marina still offers sailboats, or is it only pontoon and sea raycers?

My husband also considers this a question of vital importance. We aren't going until October, but his research indicates that they still have one or two Hobie Waves - 14' catamarans. The last time he sailed them was in 2009, though.

Like I said.. I don't recall seeing "sailboats" or catamarans in May. I was at the Marina several times. Anyone else?

They are still listed on the Disney website:
http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/res...rt/recreation/

If you check the satellite view on google maps, there is a sailboat snuggled in the southwest corner of the marina. That is listed as a 2011 picture. They are not moored along with the sea raycers. Edit -- Then again, this picture does not show the GF construction wall, so who knows when it is from.

It would be very nice to get a definite visual confirmation. In the meantime the evidence suggests that they are present, even if they went unnoticed.

Because it is a pain.

Last time we went I tried to find out if they were still offering the family boating plan. It took over an hour of being transferred back and forth to find out "probably not - I'm not sure." It is hard to get the marina directly on the phone, and they are the only ones who know (or don't know -- as I said, I had some weird experiences when talking to them).

47 days and counting! I feel like I should start packing things away now. I can't believe how quickly the days are starting to fly by.

There have always been sailboats there on my visits. My last one was 8/10 and I have a marina pic with one in the background, so unless things have changed (which is of course, possible)...
