with a Mouse boat https://www.facebook.com/groups/duckworks/permalink/2675787019310337/
Went for a paddle/sail today. After my photographer went back in the house, I learned to put my paddle on up-wind side of the boat and sail across the lake sideways, about 90 degrees to the wind. Tacking crosswind is more fun, more active and involved.
The mouse boat is only 8 feet long and it has a large keel at the back so it doesn’t wiggle so much when you paddle. So I hold the paddle /rudder aft and lever off the side of the boat.
you get moving and the keel hooks up and it works real well it’s fun
