I have been managing to get out occasionally. But the Columbia and all her tributary rivers are running very high. The water is looking like the chocolate river from Willie Wonka.
So, I am still modding the kayak. My latest is adding a water ballast system behind the cockpit. It is constructed around a 10 Liter MSR Dromedary Bag held to the hull with NorthWater’s Bladder Anchor System.
I’ll post some pics of the setup (and a bit more detail) a bit later but for now its amazing how much less “twitchy” the kayak is even in minor waves. I am so pleased that I have offset that problem!!
