Wednesday's trip Mallet's Bay featured the launch ceremony for Tom's new sparkly-white skin on frame kayak.

Boat builder and all around Greenlandic fixture Turner Wilson was on hand sharing some paddles that seem like they were carved from a closet rod rather than the usual 2x4. Compared to mine and some others I've used, they really let you know if you aren't canting the right amount.

It seems to balance well.

Good news, bad news...

The bad news was Turner's car lost a belt (at least) so he had to stick around to get it fixed.

The good news is that meant another paddle today while waiting on the car.

The bad news is I stuck my hand with a chef knife this morning and couldn't go.

Ouch! So that's what that four stitches comment was about. Leaving tonight, I'll tell Turner tomorrow!
