First solo canoe trip

Recommended Posts

That river was one of the most frustrating experiences of my life.  Me and a buddy floated it and fished it hard high and low and maybe caught 10 between the two of us.   I did everything that was suggested and I figured we would catch a ton but man that river fishes tough! It was especially scary not knowing where were were at times.  I could have sworn that we were fishing in a constant circle because that river snakes so much in such short distances.

I packed everything but the kitchen sink when I floated that river too!  The only thing I forgot was straps for one of our kayaks for the ride back from the second car.  That means I had to put one on the roof and another one jammed into my hatch.  I still have gravel dust all over my car from it!

So admittedly, I am not a boat restoration guy by trade.  I am a chef.  I can make a broken fiberglass canoe float again, no matter the damage.  It may never look like a canoe again, but it will float.  So, I'm done patching the bad spots.  I began laying the matting and the resin.  Things got away from me as they usually do.  


It will float.
