  Watch out for that ice
  Posted by: booztalkin on Nov-28-12 12:25 AM (EST)
 

I think it was the only time paddling ever stopped being fun. It was cold and the wind was blowing 25-30. The wind kept me pinned in some mud flats. I was in a fix, but that's not why I write.

There was a lot of spray flying, and everything got kind of icy. When I finally got to the landing, I threw the boat up to my shoulders and it about crushed me. Ice had accumulated on the boat. I knew there was ice but wasn't expecting the extra weight. So, watch out for that!
