  Take a kayak class
  Posted by: Pirateoverforty on Feb-06-13 3:14 PM (EST)
 

Where I live, many of the boating laws (stickers, inspections, required eqpt) do not apply to kayaks or boats with a motor under 5 horse. But that varies state to state. Still it is nice to know what is going through the powerboaters mind besides 1.2 BAC.

I would recommend a basic kayak class if one is in your area to teach you a proper paddle stroke. It is not intuitive and an improper stroke can lead to some unnecessary shoulder/wrist pain, sore arms, and slow travel. At least study the videos here on P-net. That is the biggest do-over I'd like to have from when I started.
