Earlier in this thread, there was some discussion of an AMC trip in early June. Is that what he's talking about?

I'm hoping to get over there as well. But PPR won't be the same without Norm, so I'll probably skip that.

Re: Skeg inaccessible

I'd like to say that I fixed it, but I believe that "fix" is too strong a word. Let's just say that it's operable again. It's still stiff, and this was causing a section of the cable to buckle. I duct taped that into place, and now I'm back in business. One thing though is that I have to r...

Re: Skeg inaccessible

When you say "the back", are you referring to the area close to the skeg itself? If it's glassed in, how do they possibly fix issues up there near the control?

Skeg inaccessible

I'm having problems with my skeg, and I suspect that the problem is behind the controls. So I got in there today and was a little shocked by what I saw. I simply can't believe that they make the kayaks like this, but I really don't know. From what I can tell, the cable and assembly appear to be perm...

Re: Monomoy trip, Thursday 25th June 2015

I'm not suggesting that you organize a separate shortie trip. I can tag along on the long trip and just take a shortcut.

Weekdays are fine with me. I'll just tell my boss I have to go to the store for something and hope that she doesn't see the kayak on my roof.

Re: Camp Kiwanee

Thanks, Skip.

Once every year, we have a training session and get there to find that there's no parking due to some event that is being held there - a multi-town swimming competition or something. I wonder if we can find out when that is and have the training at an alternate location on that night.
