Should I take my Canoe?
Heading out for a week plus on Leketoy. My niece gets married on Saturday at Roche Harbor on San Juan Island. I am taking the boat. I will be knocking around the San Juans for the next week with one of my kids and friends from Denver (each part of the week) I have a 16 foot Royalex Old Town canoe. I use it a lot. It's set up for rowing, both fixed and sliding seat (won't bring that stuff) as well as paddling up to four people.
I plan to build a roof rack with rollers for the top of the pilothouse, but, as you would expect, I have not even started it, and we leave early on Friday.
I have foam blocks to carry the canoe on a car top. Anyone see a problem with pretending the pilothouse roof is a car top and putting the canoe belly button up on the foam, with tie downs to my handrails?
Anyone done such a thing?
The cure for everything is salt water - sweat, tears, or the sea
