We just got a couple of Wilderness Alto's from a neighbors garage sale. They were moving and threw in everything including a rack to haul them on my truck. Maybe now we can go yaking with Sky, HowieE and the Slowsky's next time we are all together at the Canopener. They were pretty dirty and needed some small repairing but they cleaned up really nice and should be fine for us.

Nice find, and that sounds like fun!

As a suggestion, you might think about finding spray skirts for the boats. Even though you may not be out in heavy surf, the skirts help keep water out of the cockpit and can make your ride more comfortable and probably a bit safer. Certainly not necessary, but a suggestion. They look like great boats!

kayak

We were at the Casini Ranch rally on the Russian River a couple of weeks ago. I really wished we had a little kayak. What would you all recommend? I just want a tiny one person little boat with a paddle. Plastic, blowup anything. Just something to go out in the water with. (no rapids) Maybe two ? One for the hubby also. They/it wold have to fit in the back of the pick up and hopefully not too expensive. Any ideas/suggestions ??

Thanks Denise

I paddled with a guy in the Elkhorn Slough who was in a kayak made of 1/2" maple stringers and saran wrap. Seemed to work pretty good, was small, and weighed about 5 lbs.! All I can say is that it had a flat bottom, vertical sides, and was pointed at both ends.

I'm sure Mark would like nothing more then to send me out in the water with nothing but a few sticks and some saran wrap!! I have no intention of making him that happy!! lol

Hey Tim,

That Eddyline Shasta has enough room for Bailey! How did you and Linda Lu do in the Russian River Race? We missed you at Bodega Bay and Casini....don't make a habit of that!

Cheers, Dee

Eddyline Shasta

Thanks to my friend Dan @ Headwaters I was able to test another kayak. This one under race conditions, I'm laughing, race in a rec boat. yup.

The Eddyline shasta , as one would expect is a first cabin kayak. The finish of Eddylines is just fantastic. Seats are adjustable on the height of the back support, not necessary in race conditions but should you want to raise it up you certainly can, get out the binocs and birdwatch all day. Quite comfortable. The front seat can also be mounted aft facing. The Boat can be paddled by moving one seat to the pre existing holes in the center mount position. Could probably purchase a 3rd seat for a child passenger. It's a very versatile wide open cockpit.
Paddling, well here's the deal. this is a fast kayak for a rec tandem. It's 28" beam is about 9" wider than I like,lol. Stability is great, you gotta be lame to flip this baby. The Navigator rudder is IMHO the best rudder out there. I think I may install one on my river race kayak.
The water was low in a few places and being as we were racing and had the owners "blessing" to go for it and not worry about dinging the boat, well we did just that.We scraped about 6 times, once pretty good, at the finish I checked the damage, minor scraped, no big deal.
Weight at 62 lbs without the seats was WAAAYY nice. I was able to throw it on top of the subaru alone.yup.
Trere are other reviews of this boat out there online, I really enjoyed paddling this kayak. It is a wonderful kayak for its intended use.
We did ok in the race. We were bib 460.co-ed doubleshttp://www.greatrussianriverrace.com...nalResults.pdf

Hi Denise,
We love our lightweight Santee 140T, a tandem kayak with a solo soul. It cuts through the water with the stable, efficient performance of a one-seater. It is constructed with unique trylon construction, our tandem weighs in at only 52 lbs. which makes it incredibly easy to hoist up on roof rack of TV or into your truck bed. We are anxious to take ours along after we take delivery of our new Flying Cloud next month.
Happy streaming,
FCloud9
