I've been wanting to change my avatar for a while and I can't figure out how to make it small enough. I sent Gayle the file so maybe she could help. For now I don't have one. :(

Hi Roberta,
I completely forgot to look here after seeing your launch in the main thread. It looks great in the water and looks like it rides at a nice slightly nose up attitude. Have you considered a solar charger? I have one but it's for when I'm not around. It's a pretty big panel and I have one of the little regulators that keeps it from overcharging.

I'll put up with charging with my little plug in for the balance of the season. If I don't get a flywheel alternator installed by spring, I may consider that option. Thanks, Jeff.
