The G-man get his new boat

The christening

Gerard ordered  a kevlar Nordkapp LV before Christmas.  It has arrived.  This past weekend he and Hazen went to Bay Bulls for its inaugural paddle.  What are you pouring on there Gerard?

All aboard

Notice how Gerard is getting in carefully avoiding the rocks.  I felt the same way a couple of years ago but with time and that first scrape over a submerged rock, the boat will truly be christened.  Its unavoidable, a sad fact of life.

Not so close

And, there will be times when collisions or little bumps are also unavoidable.  Its that first one that sends chills up the spine.  Nevertheless, taking delivery and the first paddle in a new boat will always be burned onto the mind, the mind of happy memories.

Great looking boat Gerard, a unique G-man special colour scheme.  I know you will enjoy it.

Thanks Hazen for the use of your photos.
