A little "stick" time

Boo and I broke out the pram on Saturday. Light winds out of the north were prefect for a little stick time. Koa and I paddle along side, giving pointers and encouragement.

Not too many people out for a Memorial Day weekend / Saturday. Sketchy weather in the morning must have scared off the weekend warriors. Pouring rain turned sunny by noon, perfect.

The wind stayed pretty light in the morning, but the afternoon offered a stiffening breeze. I had a hard time keeping up with Boo.

Pretty nice day out, but In the end, the wind died out and I had to tow Boo in. We ended up going out for dinner at the Moon. Wow, light crowds for a Memorial Day weekend.

For a community that needs tourism to thrive, not the start that everyone was hoping for. Nice for the paddlers and sailors, but not good for the hospitality industry.

redeyepaddler here, wondering about the make of this pram? constantly thinking about a small fleet boat for the ob school here on the kawishiwi river. puddle duck racers need to much time build, though quite inexpensive. greg

you can buy a used pram cheaper then you can make one for materials alone... google optimist dinghy... craiglist has one for under $700.00
