Re: Designer's Choice Howmar info needed,please
Two different days of sailing.
First was last Friday on an open lake... with lots of wind. A bit exhilarating for sure. Except when we were close to an island and was screened from the wind, or the wind was a little more funky.
Second day was on a closed lake (a dammed up river) and little wind...
One thing I also noticed is if the boat isn't moving or moving slowly, the rudder has little affect on the direction.

We probably should have done the little lake on the windy day and big lake on the less wind day. The benefit of the river/lake though, on a calm day, was when we headed back we were going with the wind and the current. Though the current might be less than a mile an hour... it all adds up.
Seems there is a small leak somewhere and with the lack of speed, the self-bailer was all but useless.
