: Are you still kayaking?
Nope, I have sciatica and a back problem, which gets aggravated by the
kayak sitting position. I still like canoeing though, when I get the chance.

I could never kayak for very long without back pain. I would like to build a
more comfortable boat some day. I did have an 18' double kayak that had an
open deck design that was pretty nice to paddle as a single.
Have you ever paddled Patagonia lake? Worth while?
