I’ve finally gotten around to painting the name on the transom, it’s only been just over a year! I’ve had the name picked out since before I finished building her, but I’ve spent my free time building and improving the more practical things on the boat.
A few weeks ago my wife and I took the boat out to a sand bar on the eastern end of Gwynn’s Island for a beach day. The trip was only 6 miles, but we had a great day on the sand and some excitement on the way home. It was a good test for my homemade anchor in light and flukey winds.
A few weeks ago I took my boat out from Windmill Point at the Rappahannock River. I planned to go north and explore Fleet’s Bay, but changed my mind and went where the wind blew. I went 26.2 miles in 5.5 hours with an average speed of 4.8mph and a max of 7.8mph.
