The red boat on my profile picture is my 14 ft tsunami. I just got a 17.5 ft Pygmy Coho which is a custom built kit boat.
Advanced. My friends and I will leave the launch point and paddle continuously for 2 hrs. We expect that we will cover 7 - 8 miles in that time. I have paddled the Illinois, Spoon, Mackinaw, Rock, Colorado, & Occonto Rivers along with Lake Michigan. We consider 6 miles to be a short trip. FYI, 2 friends of mine and I paddled Henry to Shore Acres during the jaunt in 3 &1 /2 hrs. We did break for lunch, and we were pushing the pace on that trip.
Find a group of other advanced paddlers that are capable of paddling with us.

Kayak the IIllinois river most every weekend with a few friends.
