You're probably confused by the way they've dressed... but I bet they're there <G>

Kinda surprised they don't need all bodies to windward.

Kinda surprised Paul suggested a boat with a crew of what appears to be only men...

Back in my teenage halcyon age of good and bad days, a modified sunfish (with a small ice chest full of drinks and food, a dry bag with suncreen, towels and an old cotton blanket) was the ultimate camp cruiser. I was always amazed at the girls who wanted to go sailing with me to the small, nearly secluded white sand islands only a half mile offshore. Those sunny warm summer days, we would chase the mullet in the sea grass, drag the boat on to shore, set up lunch, taste the salt that dried on our lips. We would stay for the day, get sunburned and head back in time before their mothers worried. No other boat I ever had since gave me such a feeling of freedom, adventure and fun.

Sunfish - what a delightful little boat. I taught myself to sail on Apalachicola Bay in a Sunfish. Yeah, good memories.

There's probably 4 or 5 tons of rocks under the "deck".
(Decks and hatches kind of preclude it from the open boat catagory in my book).

Yes, but is it large enough for a certain sail & oar champion's ego?

Good memories Ted !
