North Star Launch *Pic*
Date: 6/18/2001, 8:44 am

Well,I finally launched my North Star on Saturday. Couldn't have asked for nicer weather. 90's Here's yours truely posing with the left over bottle of Steel Rail ale used for the christening. Couldn't waste the whole bottle for that. :) Boat paddled very nicely and tracked straight and true. Well I finally talked the wife into trying it and I didn't get my boat back for 2 hours. Guess you know what I'll be doing now for sure. One comment we heard from some swimmers nearby," Hey look,They make a kayak that looks like wood" Just got back to work so I'll post some more pics later.
