Dear Jerry and Andrea,
Today was the maiden voyage of Chesuncook. I gingerly put the boat on my car rack, tied it down and set off for
San Diego Bay. My daughter and I launched the canoe at the San Diego Yacht Club and there is no doubt who had the
best looking boat there.
It is a remarkable boat. Relatively fast, a head turner, and a pure joy to paddle. Thank you for creating such
a fine vessel.
-- Barry, San Diego
