It's a good thing

Walker Bay dingy's have a one way valve in their garboard drain! We forgot to put the plug in! Well, sheeesh, it was the first voyage of "Lil' Peace" and we were a little anxious to get going. Haven't been on the water at all this year!

Here's the monstrosity rigged and ready to launch!

I was a little worried the Jeep wouldn't be able to pull this monster! :-)

Underway with the Admiral looking for hazards & snags!

We're going forward dear. The deadheads and rocks are usually the other way! :-)

The Minn Kota 55 lb thrust trolling motor worked well. It pushed us along at a max speed of 3.85 kts and we averaged 3 kts. Half power we were about 2.2 - 2.3 kts.

Time to renew my fishing license methinks! :-)
