Adding duct tape...of course

Thanks to mattskayaking for the duct tape idea for ease of spray skirt removal. Geez, why didn't I think of that? Will definitely do that before I put my daughter back in her boat.

Also, agree with you about taking it easy. It's all about having fun together for us...swimming riffles, playing in pools, climbing on rock, and paddling the boat. I have a friend who taught his son to kayak and said it was a great way to keep in touch w/his kid, especially during the teen years. I'm not sure my daughters will want to paddle with Dad by then, but I can always hope!

A comment to brandon about Jackson kayaks and customer support. This has been my first experience with Jackson and they were great with me. Though I bought my boat used, they threw in an extra pump bulb that I needed to replace for my kid's Happy Feet for free with the paddle I ordered, and they we're quite friendly about all of it.

Although this is an older discussion, I thought I'd share my story in case it helps someone.

I'm a small woman (under 5 feet tall), so I paddle "kids'" boats.

Nylon sprayskirts (the kind one might use for the pool) are easier to pull then neoprene ones.
