sv Terrapin let us try their inflatable Stand Up Paddle boards (SUP's). They may it look so easy.
Crew of sv Terrapin going ashore
It was sort of challenging but we did wait until there was a fair amount of wind to give it a try....D-oh. We both started on our knees and then transitioned/graduated/ to standing. SUP's are so kewl because you are up 5 ft or more the water level and thus can see fish, turtles, stingrays, and such a little better than in the kayak which is 2 ft above water level. A budget meeting aboard s/v Honey Ryder has been scheduled to review the possibility of inflatable SUP's aboard s/v Honey Ryder. Given we didn't try these until mid-afternoon Dec 23rd, it didn't seem fair to stress Santa with a last min. request like that. Hee hee
