Starting A New Fleet In West VirginiaBy Bob Richards - Sewell #684 "Soapy" (1ea 1ar)
G'morning Mr. Pen,
When we found your information on the Puddle Duck, a bright light came on ! As a sailing association with two goals, your Duck filled the bill to a T. We are now well into building 12-15 PDR's using both types of air boxes, with the majority sporting the Leg-O-Mutton sail plan. We will start a new hatch in two weeks.
This is our first PDRacer for registration, note the rear air-box was laid out so he could attach a small electric motor when not under sail.. This 1st. boat will likely be a bit heavy, as I added a good deal of additional material....lol All that remains to do now is the Rudder system and Lee-Board, along with the Blue and Gold (WV) colors.
During a resent conversation with Dave Gray, ( Poly Sails) he suggested I let you know about the 2nd. annual Mountain Mama-Hospice Regatta so that you might inform the other members of this event.
Our most sincere thanks for your comments and support,
Bob Richards aka Soapy
