Re: Sometimes I Want to Be Alone !

Maybe a flag along this line?

Here's a pic of my kayak model. People have made many Atlantic crossings in Kayaks. They do "cruise".

I guess hanging the ole skull and crossbones doesn't have the effect it used to.

1956 Dr. Hans Lindemann crossed the atlantic in Klepper folding kayak, that's skin on frame. He was followed by a whole host of crazies. I love these people. I once worked on a local long distance rowing teams boat for a transatlantic bid. The boat was pretty cool...

human powered trans atlantic expedition

I like the guy who swam across.

Re: Sometimes I Want to Be Alone !

True I should not lump Kayakers together. There are some great boaters out there, no matter what they row. Its just the ones that row about the harbors: they often don't seem to have a clue about proper traffic navigation. Kinda reminds me of jet skiers

Re: Sometimes I Want to Be Alone !

If you think kayakers can be bad you should see the situation in my marina these days. A business opened up here renting stand-up paddleboards. All of a sudden they are everywhere, and the people paddling them are mostly first timers. They are paddling around a busy fairway, looking like they might fall over into the 48 degree water at the slightest wake. No wetsuits. They like to give you dirty looks or flip you the bird for daring to drive past them in your own fairway. They also paddle up to boats and peer in the portholes "just to check it out". The only redeeming factor is that they have started a yoga class on paddleboards. A bunch of ladies in lycra get out there in the bay and do yoga while standing on their paddleboards. It's simultaneously impressive and hilarious...
