A stranger in the night

A stranger in the night

Postby Reeling » 25 Sep 2018, 13:43

To my surprise I had a txt from an unrecognised number yesterday arvo simply saying:

"G'day mate - kayak delivery 8:30/9pm tonight cheers Richard"

I thought, "Crap, I'm not ready for its arrival, having only parted with my money last Thursday.

But...sure enough, under the cover of darkness a man called Richard pulled up outside the house at 8:30 sharp!

It wasnt long before something was offloaded and Richard was on his way!

The main goal of the evening was to find some space in the garage so it was secure. I managed to reinstall my hoist and store it above the Revo:

All be it a little longer....

I didnt get it in the garage until late, so will be leaving work a little early to unwrap :)

it wasnt the base paddle, but I dare say as I improve I will feel the "need" to upgrade :shhh:

So this evening I managed to get away from work early enough to have some daylight left to unveil my new toy...

Super stoked. A little different and a little bling. Not the most practical having colour on the belly but I weighed it all up and happy to enjoy it while it lasts.

I'd like to echo all of the other guys who've taken the plunge into the fibreglass world and thank Eoin (Seasherpa) for all of his advice and experience in choosing the right one for me.
