Asphalt in your repair kt.

So, I paddled in 20+K wind today. When Alan came by, he found a slab of asphalt which he placed on my forward hatch cover...and the boat finally weather cocked. We removed half and it balanced nicely.

Carl Volpal, developer of the PaddlingPartner gave me one of his 5lb evices to try in the forward hatch. The experiment continues.

Paddle safe...

Ever poured molten lead?

That's what that little hatch in front of the cockpit opening is for.
:o)

Wow! What a foxy-looking boat!
It's a sports car!

Great idea, Russ...not.
Ah, Vicki, it caught the artist's eye. The boat goes well with my trophy wife.

I certainly hope you don't go around putting chunks of asphalt on top of your trophy wife. ;)

Kinky, but not a good idea ;-)

A guy walks into a bar with a chunk of asphalt under his arm and says, "I'd like a beer please, and one for the road."

I don't think of Alan that way.
