Good report and great photos. Where did you find your Blackhawk? Starship or Ariel?

Thanks for the kind words, that trip was a lot of fun.


Cowdoc, that's a Starship I picked up in Duluth a few years back. My first solo and I feel lucky to have been looking at this board when it went up for sale. It has a CCS snap on cover, I hung a new seat this summer, glued in a kneeling pad and will give the ash some oil again this Fall. It's a great boat for loading up and traveling, and those lines are pretty too (Phil Siggelkow design).
