The site is down right now but you can see the image here: http://i.huffpost.com/gadgets/slides...37258_free.jpg

Pete is a hell of a guy, but I think it might take more than this to convince people to pay more for health insurance than the fine/tax costs. That said I do appreciate the damaged bow with tape. It separates the kayakers from the kayakers extraordinaire.

Is the white on the bow and stern from bad photoshopping, or is there a new Burn prototype I'm unaware of?

Nice Pete. Couldn't agree more. I know several folks who got hurt kayaking who didn't have insurance.

By all means, good on ya Pete! I support the campaign, just thought this was funny. Hey, at least you weren't on the "Brosurance" page...

Thanks for posting this, Roy. When I saw the proofs with that title I figured I'd get some shit for it. But hey, encouraging people to get insurance is the right thing to do.

Hey, I know that guy! Pete's a celebrity? I'm going be so nervous around him from now on.

The tag line should be something like, "When you're swimming Rigo at 250 cfs, you better have good heatlh insurance!"'

When I first started boating I thought health insurance was important, but Brian's instructed me that I don't need health insurance because the body heals itself. And I figure if I really need an emergency room visit, I'll head over the Alpenglow and have Matt work on me. If he can fix my dog he can surely fix me.
