    Tweaker. Water should've been much colder and a longer distance to shore.

    I don't think the perpetrator is a kayaker -- he stole the kayak.

    Which brings up the question -- is a kayaker a kayaker just because she/he is in a kayak?

    Good question, Dan. Akin to the phrase "experienced kayaker", which may only mean the person has gone on a half dozen trips. Examples abound of paddlers in their second season who get surprised by bad weather, get lost, or have no self rescue skills.

    He is NOT a kayaker, but a "Kayak Thief"
    Oh, as Dave says, I can strap on a pair of skates, it unfortunately does not make me Sydney Crosby :wink:

    Correction, that was Dan, not Dave, but Dave did make a good point too! :big_thumb

    I'm pretty sure that I didn't say that.

    Dan, I meant you said the "perpetrator" stole the kayak, I know innocent until proven guilty/kayak thief.
    If you are talking about the skating analogy, well, also my bad... :doh:
    Today I am just failing...There is always tomorrow :big_thumb

    For sure, he got caught redhanded with blue hands.
    This "miscreant kayak perpetrator" is no "Vaulter Bandit".
