I've had my boat for more than 15 years. The first year found me on the water average of 7 days a Week. Shes still in excellent condition. It took a while (months) To get really comfortable with the boat, but now, the boat and I seem to be as one entity on the water. Just have to let her do it her way, and she takes care of me. This yellow boat and I will be together for the rest of my life.
I use carnuba wax on her. Makes a slick finish and crud wipes right off.
Oh, and for weather cocking, if I slow down and take it easy, we get along better. I don't have a rudder and never had a use for one.
Let this boat teach you how to paddle and you'll have a friend for life.
