Recently decided to get back into kayaking after about 30 years away from the water. Picked up a hot rod 'yak, and after putting about 50 nervous miles on the Rapier, traded it for something a little more versatile. This new boat, a Current Designs model is fantastic--stable, nimble and ultra comfy! Dropped her in the drink at Alki a couple weeks ago for a quick lap of the bay, dodging ferries, spotting a pair of porpoises and generally having a blast. The very next weekend, a paddling pal of mine from the office joined me for a repeat of the same tour. Some pix: goodbye Rapier, ol' gal...it was fun but scary... meet the new boat... waterfront exploring... starting over to Magnolia from Alki... Jon snagged another glass boat recently to add to his collection... ...will summer never end? don't get too close...the crew will yell at ya. ...with optional Mermaid!
