And baby makes 3...ah,, wait...5
I don't know about you, but I like to start the day with a cup of coffee, a little blogging and a drive across town to the frieght terminal to pick up a new skin on frame kayak. So, that is how I started out yesterday, to pick up the SOF from Peter Strand. As you can see, I still had space available in my garage, and the boat immediately felt at home (not to worry, the snow blower gets moved in May...but I digress).
Peter is known for his rolling machines, kayaks with low profiles and low back rims.

I have only unwrapped the boat but have not had a chance to even sit in it, which brings up the next interesting issue. I have to snuggle in order to get into the SOF I built, and that boat has more space under the masik than does this one. I guess I can always use butter and a shoe horn. Or, just sit and admire it.
Paddle safe... DS

Awesome Dick! I'd forgotten that you had ordered a boat from Pete. Hopefully you can fit in the boat.
