I just got a new 14.2 and took it out for the first time on Lake Latonka Sunday and had a blast. We had to tip it over to get leaves and things out of the centerboard slot that were preventing it from going down all the way. I jumped back in the shallows but my buddy couldn’t get back in in deeper water. I had a strap ladder attached to the hiking strap but they fed out of the slot cleat and it didn’t hold. I was wondering if the Barney post would be strong enough to attach one to. I have looked at the aluminum ladders but don’t want to mess with a job like that until winter.
