Launch day at last for Marisol

Finally made my way to the lake with the new 12 foot canoe "Marisol".  The hull was finished in May so it has been a long wait to get her into the water.  She looks good on the water but I still need to fine tune the rudder and seating.

Tankerton and Sandy Point

We launched at Stony point into a 15 knot south westerly and headed for Tankerton testing out my new second reefing point. We arrived just before the high tide and had lunch and a walk around on the island.  The return trip was wet but we made good time and then headed down the coast to Sandy point and back.  Three hours at the helm brings the total to 135 hours.

How far would you go?

We had some Swedish visitors over the Christmas break who were keen to take Beth for a sail.  It was a blustery day so in the interests of good international relations we restricted ourselves to the local lake.  Two hours sailing brings the total to 132 hours.

Back in the saddle

Beth hit the water freshly painted and all the new bits and pieces worked well.  It was a blustery day on the lake but we handled 2 hours of sailing well.  Easy to set up and easy to pack up all the work was worth while.  Two hours sailing brings the total to 130 hours.
