  Feel rejuvenated - that's about it

Hello Sing,
Yes, mixed some pix. With a light multi-purpose boat there is a sense of renewal for me in reordering how I approach and get on the water. I was going out very little with the heavy boats and losing my edge for high end paddling and starting to avoid that. Nasty cycle. Oddly, after my convalescence for the worst part of the back stuff, I picked up right where I left off in the Mega Cyclone. I haven't mixed it up with anything over 8-10 feet and avoid dropping off the back side of high fast movers - never good for disk preservation.
A couple more pics from a third sea trial today. taken by Dave Grainger.
For other posters, I have some experience with another 14 footer, the Looksha Sport. No comparison with my spritely Wave Weasel. My Night Heron got a lot of abuse to the hull and needed a re-varnish every couple of years. Not as impervious as a poly boat, but tougher than you might think and lot easier to fix.
