"Captain" Dick Schoonever, youngest owner-pilot on Whitmore Lake, brings his seven-foot sailboat into dock with a firm rudder hand as sister Ann, 9, holds the jib sheet. Ten-year-old Dick and his dad, Frederic Schoonover of 11781 Crestview Dr., Whitmore Lake, fashioned the tiny boat from marine plywood. Dick learned to navigate by watching members of the University's Sailing Club in action at the lake. They've named the craft "Shingibes" after a story-book duck.
