Yaks

Yo Doc.

are any of these $199 boats worth messing with?

http://fayar.craigslist.org/boa/2733788032.html

wife says she wants to goto creeks and rivers and paddle, but I figure she will use it at the lake more than anywhere else.

remind me again, how the length of the kayak determines how it handles slow vs swift water?

If you are going to buy a new boat, the outfittter in Garfield is about the cheapest place to go. However, there are plenty of good used kayaks out there that you can pick up for a lot less money than a new one and they are just about as good as new ones. The kayaks today are made of plastic and hold up pretty well to abuse.

Aaarrrgh

I grenaded the engine on the Tiger yesterday. Not sure what the cause is till I get it apart, but it's got a rattle in the lower end. The oil light came on as I was running along just over 100 and then the noise. There's oil in the motor so I'm confused. I guess I now have a winter project.
