Russ and Laura Morrison of central California have owned a Whitehall Spirit 14 sailing model since 1993. An excerpt and photo from one of his first letters is as follows:
"...We have been enjoying the boat beyond all our expectations. Our five year old, Muir, got tired of being chauffeured around our local lakes, and insisted upon learning to row. As you will see from the photo, he does pretty well, if not for very long! He is very animated about learning to sail and that will come a little later."
"Everywhere we went this summer the boat continues to attract much
attention. We are getting used to that now, after a few years! I
don't think I've ever been on a launch ramp where several people
haven't had several questions about the boat. Sometimes it makes
it hard to get out on the water! Thanks again for everything."
