    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?

    I looked at kayaks last summer at southtown sporting goods. They had good prices and the people there are super!

    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.

    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.

    I'm gonna insure and tag the Beemer and ride it, at least it keeps running regardless. :evil

    I'll fix the Tiger and put it up for sale in the spring, I don't think I could trust it long term now. May be time to shop for a new toy. :deal

    Sounds like a great excuse to sell it to me! Very logical.
