do you have something you wish to confess about your rudder there kiwineil?
actually now that u mention it ...
i have a great feel for the water.. i could happily play around in it 24/7
but my rudder ...
well .. it just seems so inadequate after the 4th or 5th hour ..
LOL you guys are too funny.
its all in good fun i think ...
now im going home to build me a ocean-going sea kayak with rear thrusters (for xtra stability of course)
i think it's a good idea that you do that, neil. particularly since the kids likely go to bed early, and your partner -- if she's anything like us here -- will appreciate it. nothing like a good, ocean going sea kayak to get the heart aflutter.
I couldn't agree more. Especially if it is a two person kayak and you are the only one paddling or the two of you are paddling in opposite directions.

but i do like the way u think zoe
yeah, girl, you did. but it's working for us.
and yeah, i'm normally thinking this way. if i wasn't so obviously a girl, i would be a guy when it comes to kayaking. i'm fairly certain i do think about kayaking every 7 seconds or whatever it is. LOL
I think a lot of women (myself included) do but they have been taught that it is not "ladylike" to admit to such a thing.
true, true. more of that cultural mythos stuff. bah!
my friend suggested a new toy as well. she even wanted to send it to be gratis from the US. i suppose i shall accept delivery. at least sisters are looking out for each other.
