Kayaks and Trawlers

Trying to get just as much fun out of my trawler as is humanly possible (and still be law abiding) I bought a kayak and installed it on the front deck. The idea was great! The reality of it a bit less. Turns out that putting it in the water and retrieving it calls for some imagination and creativity. And getting into it from the swim platform (and back out of it again) requires not only the balance of a seasoned acrobat, but a lot of flexibility which my old bones gripe about. Nonetheless, the St. Marks River is a good kayaking river, so I plan to have a lot of fun with it.

Probably you wonder why I tell you this. Well . . . gotta tell someone, and my ex doesn't seem to be all that excited about it. :-)
