Rick, you are too kind. As seals are rather scarce here I used PVC fabric, 610 grams per square metre, secured with stainless steel staples onto a piranha pine frame.

I'm picking up a used Necky Manitou 13 on Saturday. Today I bought all the other stuff I need like a spray skirt and safety equipment. I'll try out the boat on Monday ,then in a couple of weeks I head out to Connecticut in the Safari with the boat on the TV roof.

Wow, great thread. The Mrs. and I live in Federal Way Washington. Living here and not kayaking would be like living in Chicago and not listening to the Blues. We got hooked up with an organization called the Moutaineers and took this basic kayak class. Basic is not accurate thought. We really got into it. I own an NC 19.5 sea kayak and Alison has a 17 foot. I have gone over night camping, once and our friend reached in her hatch and pulled out a dutch oven. Can you imagine tent camping and one of the crowd pulls out that hot chocolate cherry cake, from an oven????

The hardest part was find a way to carry kayaks and tow the AS. We finally settled on a PU with a cap and it works great.

Our last big outing was in the San Juans. We even had snow. Last week I was paddling with some friends and a seal hopped up on the back of one of our boats. Sat their for a minute, said hi and hopped off.

The other thing we like to do it find the negative tides, and at this latitude, the tidal changes are great. so to a shallow area that is usually in feets of water and coast along in a foot deep or so and check out the marine life. You will see stuff you cant beleie. Colors and designs that you can only see when the Puget Sound recedes. We are hooked I tell ya

Lake Tahoe-July 08

Here's a few pics. It's always amazing to be paddling Tahoe and be able to see your shadow on the bottom of the lake 15 feet below you!

Went ocean fishing in the kayaks at San Simeon this weekend. Caught a bunch of rockcod. I also caught a 25" Lingcod that I released. Here's a photo of our catch.

FWIW;

If you have been thinking of upgrading your paddle you may want to check out REI web site. Some pretty good markdowns on Werner Paddles.

I am the proud and excited new owner of a Liquid Logic Remix XP10. I have taken a few classes to see what kind of kayak would best suit my needs. This new hybrid is just what I was looking for. Its a little heavier but the trade off is greater comfort and stability. It is 10'3" , weighs 49# and is 28" wide. I wanted to be able to fling my legs outside when I felt like drifting or relaxing. They are built locally in Greensboro which is another plus. It handles whitewater and smooth lakes great due to a drop down skegg. It has a large dry storage compartment so that long day trips or over night camping is definietly feasible. I am just chomping at the bit to get it in the water and start building up my strength and endurance. I plan on transporting it in the back of our Silverado 250. I can lift it by myself but due to the fact tht I am short I need help hoisting it in the truck (thats what my husband is for LOL) I am on a strength training program at the Y and I intend to be holding my own by the time the good weather gets here. I live near Belews Lake and the Dan River and have some other, should I say "mature" women friends who kayakl ocally that I will be taining with during the next few months when weather permits. I will post pics as soon as I can but you can go to shopgetoutdoors.com to read a great review and see pics.

Took me awhile to find

Glad you started this, Doorgunner.
We have a trio of Hobies. They're like the recumbent bike of the kayak world. I especially like the sail on the Adventure Island because there is always an afternoon wind on the mountain lakes.
However, taking them along when you visit the Alvord Dry Lake in Oregon made for some interesting observations from old timers there.
Yak on.
