Tried to upload a photo, site wouldn't accept it, too many pixies apparently :shock: and found it all too hard to resize it.
However if you look at http://www.quiversail.com/quiversail/home.html
You will get the idea. It certainly wasn't mine.Then buy a sheet of vinyl, visqueen, or strong polythene. Two sturdy sticks about 1/2 x 3/4". Rectangular is best as it can get a little hard to hang onto. A roll of duct tape. Mine came in at about 4' wide top. 18" wide bottom and 3'3" high. Took it out today to play with in light to moderate wind. Great fun. Can sail downwind, and at 90 degrees to the wind either direction. Now I'm waiting for one of those days when I would have said "way too hard paddling in that wind, I'll stay home" :D
Laker prefers to sit side on to the wind when not being paddled and it sailed very well and straight at 90 degrees across the wind, either direction. This really suits the Passage where I do my salt water thing. Can only imagine it being better on a lake where there are no tidal races to contend with. $5, you can't lose. Give it a try.
Regards John.

Thanks mate, I actually meant a pic of the one I made, however that does make things clearer.
Regards John.
