Spray Skirt – 5/29/2018

It was highly recommended that we have a spray skirt on our boat for the Texas Water Safari. I wasn’t too worried, but Jo Jo took care of us. She planned a day and came over to help us out. We started out by putting T in the front of the boat and cutting a hole for her.

It didn’t take long before I was in the back with a hole cut out for me as well.

And Jo Jo went around with the rubber cement and glued us together!

If you’re wondering about the materials, its rip-stop nylon from a local fabric store and some rubber cement glued on Velcro strips. And maybe some duct tape for good measure. Jo Jo came back a few days later to help me reinforce the material. And it held perfectly for the race and packed up very small. Its great having handy friends!

April – 2018

This month, its all about me. In an effort to get a light above my desk at work fixed, I took a “scared” photo of myself holding a poop emoji. I sent this to the office manager that promptly got it taken care of. But she printed it out and put it on the office fridge.

CoatRack, our large cat likes to sleep on top of us.

A training paddle in a Spencer C3 with JoJo. This is the fastest boat I’ve ever paddled and I thought we would be using it for the Texas Water Safari.

October Sunset Race – 10/12/2017

Likely to be the last warm Sunset Race of the year, I made sure to get out there early and get a short unicycle ride in with the sunshine!

When I got back from my ride, I was in time to see JoJo getting her boat down from on top of her van. A feat that most need to see to believe!

What you can’t see in the photo are the steps in the side of the van she used to get up there. Either way, its a long way up for transporting a boat!
