Shearwater 14 & 16 Hybrids' big test

We just had our first big paddle weekend of our recently completed kayaks on Smith Island and they passed the test with an A+.  Thanks CLC.  Completing the weekend was the 10 mile open water paddle between Tylerton on Smith Island and Crisfield, MD with 2 foot waves (bigger at times) and the kayaks went as straight as the gps line we followed. The highlight of the crossing was when 8 bottlenose dolphins came up to my wife and one stared eye to eye with a look saying another one of those silly dumb humans. My wife was squealing with excitement.

Are you sure it was a dolphin? 8-) That must have been prety neat. I had a couple of largish sea lions roll past me the other day. Fortunately, it wasn't quite eye to eye!

not a dolphin!

PS - that was a foam rubber seal used by the photographer to lure the umm... dolphin in for a close-up!
