Launch and maiden voyage of my MC 16.5

I had a great day with friends and the CLC staff at the demo day at Lake Natoma.

Thank you for the helpful advice and the nice comments about my kayak.

Pretty!  May it paddle as nicely as it looks!

It looks very nice, I hope you had fun. Were you with the group of 6 MCs there? I think two were MC 13s. I had my WD12 there. One fellow had a beutiful Red Fish wood stripper there.

My impression was that one fellow w/ a MC 13 may not have scuffed up his primer coat before putting on his final (dark blue) coat on last week. Some of his final coat was pealing off. - But the dark blue looked very nice. Oh well, what's another coat or two of paint?

 I plan to sand and repaint several long scratches I have got from my last two trips to areas with rocky shores.

Ralph,

Yes, I was with the group of 6 Mill Creeks.

That was me with the blue paint peeling of my MC 16.5. My primer coat looks fine under the blue. Either I did not scuff it up enough or after scuffing it up, I did not clean the dust off enough.Either way, after a paddle through the lagoon on the North side, I was trailing paint strips.

If that was that your Wood Duck with the two tone paint job, it looks great.

I've got plenty of paint for repair & repainting.
