Sea kayaks are expensive. To be honest, reading alone won't tell you what you need to know before you drop $3,000 or more on a top-of-the-line kayak. You have to paddle them to know how they feel to you. What's more, how you feel in a particular kayak may be nothing like what someone else feels in that same boat. That means, no one can really tell you what the right kayak is for you. From there you can infer that what I'm about to tell you.. is worthless..
I've got a phone conference with a client coming up in about an hour and all sorts of other businessy bits to deal with today... so all you get for stopping by today (at least for now) is this photograph of my Rockpool Alaw Bach waiting to take me on an early morning paddle up the Lake Michigan coastline toward the Point Beach lighthouse. Sometimes a photograph is almost like being there... sometimes a photograph just clarifies where you really are.
