I bought a kayak yesterday, and may be buying 2 more today.  

Yesterday: Dagger Torrent 10.0 (pick it up next weekend)

Today: Dagger Juice 7.1, Dagger Mamba 8.6 (probably on both)

Awesome, those will be a ton of fun!

took my daughters kayaking for the first time yesterday. 

Fine... 

Thinking hard about a Hobie Getaway.   Been too slow on the used ones near me and the local dealers don’t have any tricks to deal with Hobie’s horrible supply chain.   Signed up fo

This looks like fun. Picking up Kasia’s new Hobie Lynx.

It is super light, but wide so I would guess better than most kayaks.

Sweet Hobie!  We are planning to get a tandem Hobie pedal kayak but haven't found a way to haul it without a trailer.  

Jealous of the trip, Dan!

For those of you not on FB, Yumi and I packrafted for 3 days/2 nights on the San Miguel and Dolores rivers (about 27 miles).  I was a bit nervous the first day (it was my first time packrafting) but it was awesome!  Will post pics later.

Built a bunch of new rigging for the Laser. Used lots of locking eye splices and designed it with shackles to cut down the rigging time. We had to cut the Cunningham after not being able to get a bowline knot out of the Dyeema when out in about 10 mph wind. Now that should be a lot easier. Just waiting on one more shackle and then hopefully we will be able to try it all out.

You might look at Trailex (they build the Hobie branded trailers) as well as Genesis (but looks like only pick-up in Michigan) and Carnai. I think those are the usual choices other than custom. I imagine the issue though is hauling it not finding one that fit the kayaks…

Oops,  I meant without a trailer (now fixed my original post).  We are planning to get a Thule Hullavator installed on the top of the van which takes off 40 pounds but it is still going to be a bitch to put up and down.    We looked at verticle racks but it would be too tall.

Cleaned up the boat a bit and re-epoxied the mast (comp-tip). Sadly McMaster-Care might have messed up my order (a first!) and I am missing two stainless steel bolts..

Barkeepers Friend worked quite well on the trampolines. I used 3M Perfect-It for both the anti-slip and sides - the Medium cut didn’t mess with the decals.

Waiting for my new TX numbers to arrive in the mail..

I don't understand. Where does the music come out at? Is that thing in-between the pontoons a giant electrostatic panel?

It goes in here - I just not sure what Lowthers to go with?

anyone tried the Fugoo speakers? Something like that which ran off sdcard memory would be pretty sweet..
