Great boat (mine's about 35 years old). Single-handing it in the wind on a lake, what I do is sit on the deck amidships with only a throwable float cushion under me. This trims the boat so it doesn't weathervane. If I move a little more forward, the stern'll start to trail out a bit in the wind, heading the bow up so I make more progress forward and less drift sideways.

I actually love the way it feels solo in light to moderate airs - a bit like flying or walking on the water. I often stand midships with a long paddle.

I use a trolling motor sometimes and that works well too. It's nice to motor upriver using the bow as a stern, then change seats to the real stern and paddle down. The boat trims nicely with the battery, motor, anchor & chain at the other end.
