The Skin Boat School has a new and evolving web site. The photos are great. After you look at the photos on the home page, click on the "skin boat school" tab in the lower left corner and watch a different set go by.

This one, in particular, caught my attention.

I know you think that's me in the photo, but I'm actually much younger than that.

Hey, in the video, what's the story on those kayaks at 2:25 using single bladed paddles? Are they paddle board people who accidently got into kayaks that day?

Well, the 2013 Florida snow-birding season is over for us this year. Sad to see it go, had a great time. The saltwater is all washed off my boat, and its loaded on the truck for the ride home. Final tally ........ 35 outings for 263 miles.

The longest run was 14.5 miles at St. Joseph Peninsula State Park. Went from the campground out to the peninsula tip and back (all bay side). I was a tired puppy after fighting the wind that day.

My favorite paddle was in the Thousand Island area near Goodland. Paddling the everglades rocks! Didn't see one python dang it.

I did see gators, turtles, gar, dolphins, sharks, stingrays, eagles, osprey, manatee, green snake, raccoon, armadillo, and birds birds birds. Oh, and I can't forget the mullets God love em. I think they jump just for the fun of it.

SKY;
35 outings for 263 miles, that's pretty good.
I'm at 23 , but been in mexico for a while,stumbling around, zip lining, whale watching, cervesa consuming, you get the picture.
Back in the fast boat tomorrow, got my favorite race of the season coming up on the 30th of this month.
I'm sure you'll find someplace to float in your neck of the woods.
later

The bidarka is a skin-on-frame Aleutian style kayak. As such, it doesn't have any compartments inside (hard shell kayaks often have bulkheads that maintain a forward and aft watertight compartment). If you capsize, you need to minimize the amount of water that fills the kayak. One method is to have a sleve you attach around the coaming and then you sit inside it, like a sock. The other method is to fill the bow and stern spaces with these float bags. The advantange of a float bag is that you always have flotation, which is not necessarily true of a sea (kayak) sock.

The other nifty thing about these float bags is that they have two compartments, one of which is a full length dry bag. You fill up the dry bag with your camping gear, then stuff it into the available space....then you inflate the float compartment. Keeps everything nice and tight and dry.

Congratulations, looks like you had a very good day on the water. See you both in a couple of weeks up at Casini!

Sounds like fun. Never done that before on a river, sounds like a great adventure. Should I bring my life vest? I have a standard and inflatable, which should I bring? BTW, is there fishing there this time of the year? If so, should I bring my fly rod?

Just counting down the days to departure... Wish we had the time to hit Bodega Bay with you folks for the pre-rally event! See you folks soon.
