Please describe your boat(s).

yes, I own several. Also have a 6-8 place kayak trailer.

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)

Pretty experienced. Done some long trips, but only in MI. Have done some white water rafting in WV and CA. Favorite river so far is the Pine.

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, but I have also helped rescue so folks.

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

Flotation device. I don't always wear a life vest because most of the time the rivers I kayak are very tame, but when on more challenging runs, I wear a vest. Also, good water shoes are very important as well as sun protection and water hydration.


Retired teacher who has been canoeing and kayaking since high school. First trip was the entire length of the Au Sable. Now live on river and kayak as much as possible. Also like biking, gardening, and some crafts. Also, love my two grand babies.
