  1. On a downeast trip I had to replace my stern toggle line with washed up lobster line to get me through. When I got home I replaced the stern toggle line with the correct rope (it's nice to have 500' around). -Jason

    Do you wax your kayak?

    My boat is lucky to get new deck lines and replacement gel coat. Wax isn't something that any of boats should expect. Wax isn't close to air for tires. One is a safety issue, I would more equate waking a kayak to adding pinstripes to a truck. -Jason

    Chart Cases - Zipper vs Roll-Top Style?

    They all leak, I like the roll top ones better as they are slightly better and are easier to open and close. -Jason

    30 second assisted rescue

    Other than the "Wet" one holding the paddle it looks like a standard rescue.

    Various Roof Rack Stuff

    I did a quick google and J-Bars are not producing results for me: https://www.thule.com/en-us/us/sport-rack/kayak-roof-racks?q=MzGTcKw8x I don't think that I am looking for J-Bars, but I would like to know what they are. I look forward to seeing your truck. Thanks -Jason

    Group Buy-Pains Wessex Flares

    The need for 3 is to pass CG regs, That said I have been going out for 10 years without valid flares (that said I do have a laser flare in my PFD pocket).

    Group Buy-Pains Wessex Flares

    Depending on the price I would be Interested. (I would need 3 to be technically legal, I haven't been stopped for my expired in 2004 ones yet).
