Please describe your boat(s).

Yes, a 14' Valley Avocet.

How would you describe your kayaking experience? e.g. beginner (not been out yet to a few times), novice(been out more than a dozen times), kayak regularly (been out lots of times),been-there-done- that.(out in all conditions)

Novice to intermediate. Still have a lot to learn.

Do you accept responsibility for your own safety and the safety of any guest you bring, while kayaking with the group? yes or no.

Yes, I also am a licensed captain and sail by 34' Catalina Sailboat on Lake Michigan regulary, which means I am First Aid and CPR certified.

Please write briefly about kayak safety? Name a hazard and how you avoid it.

Yes, I have a good kayaking life jacket, blow up float, first aid kit etc on my boat at all times.


I have been paddling for about 5 years as a member of GRASP and WMCKA and got your link from Karl Geisel. Have been doing most of my paddling on the Grand River, White Lake, Duck Lake Live in GR so hope to join yourThornapple weeknight paddles.
