I have an upcoming class on tidal races, so Tyson thought it would be a good chance to use our plastic Avocet. We bought it last fall and it needed a little reconditioning. Last night I replaced a hatch and most of the bungies. Tonight Tyson gave it a new foam seat back. The new(ish) hatch for the Avocet came off Tyson’s Anas Acuta. So I mounted the brand new hatch covers on his boat. With all the fixes, the Avocet looks like it will be a little more fun to play with. It still isn’t my Tahe, though. Tomorrow we are off for a short paddle for me to get re-aquainted with the Avocet. Then Sunday, I suppose, will be fiberglass and gel coat repair on my Tahe.
