LOL, Bet that road sailing gets a bit tougher going up wind.

LOL. Haven't been that lucky. They leave their swimming suits on in Iowa. But from what I have told au-natural boating activities tend to take place on the Mississippi river. Usually in the presence of alcohol.

I hear you when it comes to Kayaks. There seems to be a lot of 30 something to 50 something women who like to kayak on the lake we sail.

I have been thinking about the material for my skegs. I have noted that some have used Plywood, I think Argo has White Oak.

My sailing grounds are protected 60 acre to 150 acre inland lakes.
