After 2+ years of on again/off again efforts, we launched 'Peapod' this August as a triple. We took her out on a Vermont Lake and on a tidal river and ocean (Buzzard's Bay, MA). Smooth cadillac ride, even in chop or larger waves. Wind had some effect, mostly when trying to turn across and into it. 21 feet long tracks well, turns like an aircraft carrier, even with the rudder. Best trips seemed to be with maximum load of passengers/weight, just like a cadillac...We had as many as two adults and 5 kids in her (middle cockpit opening design was modified to an oval opening). fun ride, lots of admiring looks and GREAT satisfaction out of building it myself. Boat is easy to build with little skill and materials (wood, epoxy, fiberglass) make it simple to repair mistakes or modify it in anyway during, or post construction. Working on completing the sail rig kit but not looking like it will be usable this fall...looking forward to multi-day excursions in this for years to come!
