If you spend enough time on the river you'll see stuff like this.
Looks like a pfd stuck in the hull there. What a shame, top of the line WEnonah canoe. That's all I know-- wear your pfd.
American river- Watt ave bridge.
you have the easy part done . Hang in there you'll have it floating before you know it.
I recommend weldin in the foot peg runners before you slap the deck on. easier.
also the feed store or the vet supply place has the best prices on syringes. You can get one of them big honkers to put the pnut butter mix in and lay it into the joints almost like a caulkin gun. when the epoxy kicks it will pop out of the syringe for reuse.
These were taken last weekend at a friend's family property near Peoria, IL. Awesome boondocking site. It was only the fourth time I had the kayak out and I was a little hesitant to fish from it because I thought the casting motion would hinder my balance. I soon found it to be the perfect fishing platform. Love it.
We always complained that we never used our kayaks enough...In fact, we only used them once in two years. To solve this, we sold the majority of our belongings, bought an Airstream, and now live on the road. The kayaks, of course, came with us. Okay...so that may have been a somewhat extreme approach...but it sure has been fun! Now, we have had numerous kayaking opportunities and some great, relaxing paddling trips. Below is a picture of our truck, kayaks, and our beloved Airstream. The other picture is of us kayaking the Scappoose Bay in St. Helens, OR. A wonderful and peaceful day.
We also had a tandem Hobie. Last year we traded it in on two single mirage sports. We do better if we are each captain of our own boats.
Sure enjoy the pedaling, it has spoiled me. I feel put upon if I have to paddle. Here is a picture of the tandem on our TV. Now the sports go up on top on their sides. (Don't have picture of that yet)
We are new to airstreams but have a new to us '74 Argosy and look forward to taking it camping where we can use our two 10' and two 12' kayaks. Richard use to have two 18' but sold them when he moved inland. Richard spent a week in the Everglades and many other trips before I knew him.
