Do not try to do fancy paddling in a backwards motion.
Your kayak will dump you out in the water slicker than snot on a doorknob.
You should really watch the video on the Internet half a dozen times. “How to get back into a kayak in the open water.”
You could try the old canoe trick to get some of the water out, even if it is futile.
You might just as well give up some days..because your Mother In Law will capture it all on film.
Two kayaks is definitely better than just one.
It promotes togetherness. I did notice that my daughter likes to use the paddle to lob water at her husband occasionally.
A family photo out on the water..this was my best shot.
Yup lessons learned, the boys were soaking it all in just like little sponges…the next time we go out we will do some practicing close to shore. We will practice getting in and out of a kayak in the open water. I have a Boating Safety book for the boys to read..and if they don’t read it by themselves..I will read it aloud to them, after all once they are out on the pontoon and we have left shore I have them trapped :)
