First Launch! Need Friends, Photographers, Spotters, Mentors, and Dinner Companions Wednesday at Walden

Recommended Posts

This Wednesday as I launch my latest skin-on-frame at Walden I need friends to share the joy, photographers to document the event, spotters to keep me safe while I wet exit, mentors to help me roll it, and dinner companions to join me at Comella’s afterwards.

Hopefully the bad weather forecast will keep the crowds at bay. 

I'm aiming to arrive around 4:30pm.  Off the water around 7pm if all goes well.  Though I will head to Comella's earlier if the weather or my new kayak do not cooperate.1-Baidaraka_on_Rack.JPG.e701dabaf401073d286b42fd2058dd8c.JPG

That's a beautiful boat, Bill. Can't wait to see it in person.

I can't be there this Wednesday - I'll be thrashing around in the woods about the time you're all sitting down to dinner. Looking forward to seeing you all again next week. Here's the GPS tracking link for your amusement at Comella's. We're team #28. http://www.pinnacletracking.com/Live/default.aspx?une2018

Beautiful boat, Bill! What are the specs? What brand?

I built it at the Delmarva Paddler's Retreat last fall.  Anders Thygesen ran the workshop.  My kayak is 5 meters long (just over 16 feet), and about 23" wide.

See you at Walden!.  Looks like a 60% chance of rain, but only a slight chance of Thunderstorms this evening.

I'll be there.I'd bring some single malt to christen the boat by sprinkling a bit on its bow but I'm driving straight from work and came ill-prepared.
