I finally got some photos onto the web. They still need to be sorted, titled, etc, but I think you will get the idea.

I finished painting the CH16&17 back in mid Febuary, after a couple of months paddling them naked in the scorching Queensland summer. I had my reservations about painting them red, but it was either red or "rescue me orange" or "nipple pink" or "battleship grey". Sure the paint showed up my lazy fairing, but hell, it's a kayak, not a piece of furniture.

We have since taken them on several day trips, sunrise and sunset paddles and one over night camp, and are very happy with both of them.

More photos are sure to come.
