Re: First Time Builder - looking for advise regarding a rowboat / saiboat
Alas, I have to say that "cartopper" is really kind of a killer for the load you are wanting to carry. You have already said that you are looking for something bigger than your Clipper canoe. . . .I really think you ought to research what it would take to get a light trailer hitch for your car, because it will open up a world of possibilities that are otherwise not practical.
Cartopping a great big boat isn't pleasant or easy, and if it's not quick to launch and retrieve, the boat's going to sit in your backyard instead of getting used as much as it should.
Amphibious Macroplankton Oughtredia doublendus
Mostly found frequenting the littoral and estuarine zones in the southern half of the Salish Sea, though sightings have been recorded both north and south of this area, and occasionally, but rarely, inland, in freshwater environments. This species lives on micro-brewed beer and dutch-oven biscuits,and displays brightly colored nylon and gore-tex plumage during the rainy season. Approach with caution!
