Tell us about yourself and your sea paddling experience including wet exit experience with a sea skirt.

I have 2 sea kayaks w/gear. 1st wet exit in Alaska in '89. L. Erie wet exits-both planned and unplanned! paddled all 5 Great Lakes in 2009. Have also paddled in NC- Pamlico sound and Atlantic surf.

While we welcome beginner kayakers and want to encourage those seeking sea kayaking learning events and experiences are you OK with being being excluded from events (for safety) based on your beginner status?

Yes - but I hope I'm not!

Describe your sea kayaking gear including whether you have access to a boat. Include PFD, spray skirt, wet suit and any other gear you will bring and use for outings.

2 kayaks (Perception and Wilderness Systems); 2 sets of paddles, PFDs, spray skirts, and a wet suit (not worn in years); deck compass, bilge pumps, sponges, etc.

Have you paddled on Lake Erie? If so, where and how far? There is no wrong answer to this question.

YES - my favorite place! From Lorain harbor to Lkwd. Mostly launching from Bradstreet, occasionally Huntington and RR (Scenic Park boat launch area)

Is your profile picture an identifiable head shot of YOU and ONLY you? If not, you will be declined.

I'll add a picture
