Launching the Skin on Frame microBootlegger Sport

I found a break in the ice on the river by my house to drop the kayak in for a quick trial. There was not enough open water for real sea trials, but I was able to determine that the boat floats upright and is comfortable to sit in and has no obvious bad behaviors. I'll be doing more indepth sea trials later.
