I’ll let the photos mostly speak for themselves on this one.
Now just imagine yourself a kayak sitting at the bottom of those waves, or at the top of the waves about to surf down, or somewhere in the middle upside down getting pummeled. I think I managed all of those plus a few. I got two really awesome rides in. I swam three times. The first time the water was so wild it sucked me out of the boat before I had the spray skirt off. Both Tyson and I only made it in 4 or 5 times. It took a lot of effort and patience to make it back out through the waves.
Here’s the rest of the pictures. You’ll note the stop to repair the day hatch on the Avocet. The good news is the repair held through a couple swims.
