Have fun, Lou
PS Reef ? just shift your weight. The boat will come back up. .

Lou, thanks for the reply.. I was hoping to sail across Lake erie up on plane at about 2-15 knots.. 2 1/2 to 3 hours 30 miles erie to long point, 20 miles north east PA to long point. closer to buffalo, its only 5 miles across..

On second though I`ll pass, i dont want get wet for such a long trip, it might mess up my hair, i spend a lot of time on my hair..

i`ll check the internet for parts and a sail Thanks for the Info..
