New canoe on the water

I finally got around to having a couple friends do photos of me out on the water in my new Hornbeck ultra-light canoe, 15 feet long, two feet at widest and a mere 24 pounds, way more portable than the 75-pound Grumman.  Related posts are here and here.

    After seeing it in your garage, it’s fun to see it and you out on the water! I know you’re really enjoying it, and I think that’s great!
    BTW…You’re missing a nasty bout of sticky and warm August weather in the Sunshine State. We’ll keep the humidity dial cranked up for you.
