Hey, I'm sea-kayaking!
I just took a three hour safety course for sea kayaks, and I'm on lunch... in a few minutes I'm on my way to open water in a boat the size of a cigar tube, with a bunch of other sea kayak virgins.

If nobody hears from me tonight, you'll know what happened.

And No, NightTrain, you can't have all my LPs.

1. That's great!
I love sea kayaking... it's such a great way to get around, and plus you can carry a ton of important stuff like wine. ;)

3. I'm a sea-kayaker. Welcome to the tranquility of the kayak.
I've got two ultra-light Folbots.

5. Stability=Tranquility

Are you sure you aren't in one of those short, wide white-water killers? Maybe you tried to stand up in a sea kayak. Even my ultra-stable Folbot's will throw you like a bronco for an unwise raising of the CG (center-of-gravity).

Stick with it CanuckAmok, the tranquility follows. Go to a quiet place and paddle without noise. You will sneak up on flora and fauna that you cannot imagine.



On edit: Tranquility (Dead Lakes, in the panhandle of Florida). Sorry about the compound picture. Vietnam wasn't nearly as tranquil.
