Please describe your main sea kayak (plastic, fiberglass, skin-on-frame, length?).

I've owned several plastic touring boats, but I've built a wood and fiberglass 17' Arctic Tern and currently use a Greenland paddle.

Please describe your highest level of immersion wear (drysuit, wetsuit, bathing suit?).

full wetsuit and drysuit, waterproof gloves and tall boots

Please describe your water safety skills (wet exit, assisted re-entry, eskimo roll, blow whistle and pray?).

wet exit, cowboy scramble, T-rescue, but have only rolled in a pool - with a paddle float

Please describe your preferred paddling venue (duck ponds, Willamette River, Pacific Ocean surf?).

Lakes, rivers, and occasional salt water. Mostly interested in day trips, camping for a couple of days, and possibly getting into ocean surfing.


I've been more busy these days, but I'd like to get back on the water with other paddlers and explore the PNW again.
