When It’s Hot, It’s Hot

We did not get out on the water this weekend. While it was not too hot to paddle, it was certainly too hot to load the yaks and gear. 100 degrees is definitely above my limit. Small children were bursting into flames as they tried to get to the ice cream truck. Whew!

We really love our touring boats, both at 14 feet. But I occasionally regret selling our rec yaks for the occasional paddles in tighter creeks or drifts down rivers that have numerous shallows where I would not want to drag bottom in a higher-dollar boat.

I would probably have made the effort to throw the lighter yaks on top this weekend in spite of the heat if we still had them. I made a big boo-boo in selling them to offset some of the cost for the new ones. Learn from my mistake friends, you need multiple types of kayaks.
