if you want to tow it. Defender had a sail on a hinged water
. I think this is a better solution fir the forward compartment but added 25 bucks
This is good advice (cb plug)……….
Sorry to say that we lost
our Chameleon. We were towing the boat in fairly heavy conditions. The boat tows really well and I had taped over the cb slot with duct tape because I had not gotten around to building that plug
. My suspicion is that the tape failed. The boat took on water through the slot…….got heavy and swamped. :face palm:
Seriously bummed about this. The boat is excellent for its intended use. It is rugged. Rows like a dream. Sails
like a champ. She will carry a good load. Motors great….. And we put a nice fit and finish on her. :bang head
So believe it or not I am in the process of another build. Might just name her "Redux."
