Duo

Took the Duo for a run yesterday with my wife. No joke, cruising speed is 8 km/hr. For fishing, not much action, but saw several dugongs (could be the same one). Lodo's yak may have something special about dugongs.

I took Dennis advice to re-silicon all the foot brace screws before the trip and there was no water in the hull afterwards. I also got a Garmin GPS/sounder installed so it is ready. I am looking into the Paluma Shoal for the next trip.

Two motors on a decent kayak and you are bound to go fast.

I got another single for my wife (and others to use) - she gets out very rarely but goes pretty well.
