Tricky takeout

On a perch

On our first day trip to Red Island near Burgeo it was time for a break. We spotted a beach on Red Island and decided to take out there. I approached but it looked tricky to take out. I like to have options when there aren't easy take-outs, especially for pee breaks, so I got out and lifted the boat up onto a flat rock above the reach of the swell. I looked out and Ralph was on his way in to advise we weren't stopping here after all.

No matter, it was a useful stop for me anyway as I cut back the foam shims in my hips pads that were causing me grief.

A nice sandy beach isn't always an option so I like to try these more challenging takeouts. With practice they get easier.
