  Great thread!
  Posted by: gingernc on Jun-27-13 7:24 PM (EST)

This is one of the most interesting threads I've ever seen on PNet, especially Willowleaf's summary by decade of the outdoor fads.

There's been an explosion of plastic rec kayaks where I live in central NC (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill) with a couple of big lakes to use them on. But there are also lots and lots of people here with high-end sea kayaks including home-built wooden kit boats and strippers. The aea kayakers get to the coast when they can, and to the lake when they can't. Lots of sharing of skills here with novices.

But, oh, how I wish I could spend a month in Maine every summer!
