Almost Ready

Got in a training paddle today with Kristen (KiwiBird) and David (Floatsome).  Possibly our last paddle before the EC Challenge

Lots of talk about food, gear, and last minute modifications to our kayaks.   David has just installed a small electric pump, Kristen and I both have foot pumps.  Later this week we are all getting together to put in a hydration system in our kayaks.  This will allow us to store water bladders in the cockpit with the hose coming out of a hole in the deck.  We've been running the hose thru our sprayskirts, but have never been really happy with that.  I'll post pictures later in the week.

Picture below is David in his Mirage Sea Kayak.  One of the few that was actually made in North Carolina a few years back.
 

It's quite a fierce looking kayak isn't it.

Down to wire! I'll be doing this in a few months too. First I have to get a kayak! Why wasn't running the hose through the sprayskirt adequate? Would love to see your set-up; do post pics. Also do you get out of the kayak every time "mother nature" calls?

hey cowboygirl... i would never ask to borrow a sponge from any kayaker, especially a woman. tight quarters and they don't get out of the kayak much... for anything!
