Whereabouts the great lakes are you? I'm in the north Chicago burbs and
sail out of Wilmette. I'm fairly certain I'm the only Weta in the Chicago
area that sails on Lake Michigan. There is another fellow who sails his
Weta on Lake Geneva. If you're near me, or can get out to Chicago sometime
I'd be more than happy to take you out on my Weta. Let me know.
