Maiden voyage, Old Lyme, CT

Took my AF Convertible out for its maiden voyage today, after waiting all winter for some decent paddling weather. I must say, the convertible went above and beyond my expectations.
My girlfriend, who has never paddled in her life, picked it up within minutes, and I was surprised by the speed of the boat once you get paddling in unison.

I do plan on heading down to West Marine to pick up some 303 soon. The spray deck needs to be waterproofed, as I found that water completely soaked it. Other than that, complete sucess!

(I'll post some pics once I figure it out.)
