Re: Ultimate RAID boat
I echo Bruce. These boats for the Euro stuff have left rowing behind. If you can't row it pretty close to sailing speed you lose buckets of function. You only need water ballast or other movable ballast if your rig has grown so big that your butt on the windward rail can't hold the boat down. Just had the faering down at the museum for kids to crawl on as a unit in studying Norse boats. A few rollers ( pvc, but they could have been spruce) and its off the trailer and vice versa.
Harrier is going to be in the next Small boat magazine. They did not have much wind to play but the almost the most interesting part was going ashore to have lunch, then stick some fenders under Ran Tan for a relaunch. Could have done an isthmus like that.
Ran Tan, Liten Kuhling, Vernon Langille, Josef W., Merry Mouth, Imp, Macavity and a quiver of unamed 'yaks.
