    I wonder

    How DNR would field that one with the boating laws in Illinois.



    Anchor,paddle,life jackets, horn,registration sticker??



    Excuse me did you forget to insert the plug at launching?



    Definitely not rated for choppy waters.

    Sun Showers:

    What's with the "Sun Shower" bags up on either side by the Bow?

    Notice how flat the water is. I'd like to see that thing going out of Nantucket harbor with a NW wind and an incoming tide. The waves are often over 6' high.

    I've suffered from chronic sea sickness by whole life. I've been in the top five in sailboat races and had to drop out because of it. I took up ice sailing because there are no waves on the ice. I'd like to see that thing on Lake Winnipesaukee in NH in the summer with all the chop from power boat wakes. With those electric toy motors, it certainly won't go well against any current. And any amount of wind.

    Those things rock!!

    A friend of mine had one on Lake Samish in Bellingham Wash in the mid-eighties. It took a long time to heat up the water but it was worth it.



    Nothing like being in a hot tub in the middle of a lake in January whilst snow is falling!



    The wood fired one was V 1.



    V 2 got propane, a pump, jets, a more streamlined hull and a bigger engine with alternator to run the burner and pump.
    The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
