I bought the kayak bilge pump this afternoon and tested it out as soon as I got it home. It works like a charm, bailing a 2 gallon bucket in seconds down to almost dry. Things have sure changed over the years, as I can remember when the only option
was a bucket, can, and sponge to get the job done. I very pleased with it. Yes, I have seen those self bailing things and they aren’t worth in IMHO. Saturday might be good for a short trip down stream, but the weather is moving into the cooler degrees and I have no patience for paddling in below the 50 degree weather with a chance of snow. I also picked up a knife sharpener and some “S” biners. Though not very strong, those biners are handy. I need to add the before pic of the yak here.
It will look some better after some paint is applied. It looks small with my big self sitting in it.
The water is up and 43.9 degrees F cool. I’ll feel some better when it is more near 60 F. Later, Dragon out.
