I have been having incredible times with my new friend.
One weekend we rowed in the Charles River, once in Glouster Harbor, often I row in our beautiful North River here in Marshfield, and this past weekend Roger and I went rowing in Squam Lake and the next day Lake Winnepesaukee. (I did not realize there was a rowing regatta the day before.) I've now had a bit of experience with 12-15 knot wind and I feel comfortable rowing. What a comfortable and stable craft. I have not had a moment's discomfort.
