I was sorely disappointed in the performance of my boat. I think I was sitting too far forward and driving the nose down - that kept me from getting up on plane.

Of course, it could be that I am over-canvassed for a boat that size. 40sqft might be a bit much. The wind was ripping along, tiny whitecaps were starting to form at one point, but I still just barely poked along.

I have more testing to do. It is just too pretty a boat to consign to Greg's burn pile just yet.
