    The last 3 times I have taken the Grebbe out rowing, it pretty much has been smooth as glass, But the last time I took her out it was twice as windy and choppy, I don't know what the wind pick up to, but the Laser's were hiking.

    I first rowed without the dagger-boards down and it was hard work for sure.
    I then put both dagger-boards down and it was smooth rowing from there. It really made nice difference. :cool: The Dory was much more stable and rowed straight and sweet. I really wasn't sure what to expect in choppy waters :D ?

    I think the twin-daggers boards are a interesting and good application to a row boat. A reasonable option to lee boards.

    just thought it was great.
