BTW, I am not planning to try what he did (assuming his recollection of the aforementioned events is accurate). I had another good outing with the kids in it today, this time with all 4 kids on Kerr Lake, sailing across the state line into Virginia. A couple of times when we had decent wind I pulled a boogie board behind. A couple of times when the wind dided down I had the little 2 stroke I sweated over actually run for minutes at time and push us in actual planned directions.

To arbarnhart,

I see that you are using an image for you photo of a Newport sailing in "unprotected waters". That is me in June 2006 sailing my Newport on Lake Erie, Ohio. I'd sometime trailer her "Whisper" to Pymatuning reservoir. I sailed her for 11 years singlehanded before selling in 2007 to someone in PA. Now I sea kayak for fun but miss Whisper. Have fun.

Jeff

Abarnhart, we have the exact same boat. i purchased it in the fall for the scrap value of the galvanized trailer. it was sitting in the woods for the past 5 years. i am in the process of restoring it and i would love to see more pictures of yours. -Paul
