    I'm going to be in Vancouver with my boat this coming weekend... any chance we can get a False Creek paddle going on Saturday evening (the 8th)? I'm not 100% sure I can get out, but I'm willing to try if we can get a few others interested... And I know we can always count on Dan to come out for a paddle!

    I'll be there in the rain. I'm sure everyone has rain gear but I have an extra paddle jacket if anyone wants to borrow it.

    I'm still hopeful I'll be able to make it, but can't make any firm promises. :?

    I hope to make it next time too. I've been out in False Creek at night before with Steve and Dan in Dan's double.

    I took my Redfish King (I recently bought that was advertized on this site) out today for the first time up at Buntzen Lake with Dan. It was good to get a feel for the boat's handling on calm water. We had a good paddle.
