    Yeah, I decided to do things different this year. for the last 28 years on the water, I'd put the pier and hoist in, clean and detail the boat, and launch it, all as soon as the ice went out. Then I'd wait a month for the a decent boating day, while the boat got all dirty again... This year, I'll be putting the pier in this weekend, maybe... Might get the Whaler out of the barn in a week or two... lol

    Getting old! lol

    At least the water is clean up there, I'm dumb enough to have detailed a white and black boat that I run on a muddy river that ironically is the drainage from the same lake you're on.

    Nah, fixed keel (4.2' draft) with a spade rudder, not a transom hung. My last boat was a swing keel and I didnt want to deal with that anymore. Shes a Capri 25. Looks like you have a J24? They're like bastard step cousins haha

    After kayaking with a sit in, I purchased a sit on. I prefer them.

    Just a thought…. They make kid size kayaks, get the dare devil his own, but tie him to yours maybe? Pry depends on the water you kayak on if you’d be comfortable with this….. assuming life jackets would be on the littles regardless

    Yeah, interesting idea. I might get a kid sized single down the road. Right now one craft is a lot and the neighbor has a pair of adult singles we could borrow. These kids of mine are entirely useless right now and unable to follow any form of instruction. They will have to earn independence I think. My oldest only learns by trial and error.

    I do mostly agree about sit on vs sit in. The deltas and boreals are really nice. For now we will try the el cheapo and see how it progresses before spending real money.

    I picked up a rudder kit and a wheel / cart thingy as well as an inflatable waist PFD and got my waterway permit (Oregon requires for kayaks 10’ and longer) so I Just need the dry bags I ordered to show up and I can take the boys somewhere for a picnic.

    Took the kids and their friends kayaking and paddle boarding today along the Tualatin River. Packed 3 kayaks and 2 inflatable paddle boards in there. So glad I got windoors on the topper. Made securing and loading gear a breeze.

    Thanks, it’s been great. Looking to take it out over the 4th. I feel like a teenager when I’m zipping around the lake. Can get up to about 43 with just me on glass. Hoping to get it completely refurbished in the future.

    We've had ours for two years. I bought it from the granddaughter of the original owner. I stripped it out, and I've been repairing and updating what I can. I'm at the point where it must be popped open to redo the subfloor and check the stringers. So we're having the family discussion of "sell the old boat and upgrade or do a full refurb." The kids are growing and like to take friends out too. The 70HP motor is *just* enough to pull a tube, but no one is flying off. The engine has been overhauled, new wiring, cushions & seats. It's been a fun learning project.
