Guy Vandegrift, assistant professor of physics at Wright State University Lake Campus and student Stephen Papp of Van Wert make adjustments to the PVC clamps on a sailing barge scale model in Vandegrift's classroom. The clamps are homebuilt as will be the 4'x14' sailing barge that is likely to ply Grand Lake waters this summer.
Online story associated with this photograph
The goal is to build a flimsy, yet safe and seaworthy, boat to sail on Grand Lake . The vision is that a group of these safe flimsies will be built for a summer race on the lake. Both the goal and the vision are those of Wright . . .
