Entering the yak world.
« on: November 16, 2018, 09:37:43 AM »
My day job has a long term service awards program. Lots of stuff, jewelry, yard stuff, tools, kitchen stuff, I don't need or want but then this.

9' foot yak for free. So it is on the way.

Should be good enough for lakes and light enough to carry to the beach. Thinking of using it as a cart to the beach then could yak out bait.

We'll see when it arrives. Gotta get the hang of it before facing surf.

If you are coordinated you'll be a pro the first time you sit in it.

Nothing to it at all.

Delivery scheduled for Thursday. Got to get a dolly and J hooks for the car to carry.

May go Sunday to drop it in Lake Murray to test drive it. Last time I was on a kayak was pre high school.

Got Kayak cart on the way. Got to figure tackle and rod storage and misc as time goes on. Will probably head to Lake Murray Sunday to give it sea trials.
