Greenland Boat Hits The Water


We had three Greenland boats on Little Portage, two were virgins, first time in the water to Start Kayaking. The later level was higher than I have ever experienced it.  We had to walk in water to get to the dock.  Getting in the Greenland boat was a little tricky, but with a dock it was easy putting the paddle behind you for stability.

We paddled down to the dam, the current was very strong going under McGregor bridge, Bill was going to checkout the portage next to the dam but decided against it due to the current.  Later in the day there was yellow caution tape across the entire river to keep you away from the dam completely including the portage.

The more we paddled the better the Greenland boat felt, it is very light and accelerates quickly.  I did not have a back rest yet so I was pretty uncomfortable due to that issue, had a sore back afterwards for days.  I have a back rest now that appears to work well.  Also found a spray skirt on sale at the Kayak Corral for the small cockpit.

Loading up vehicles for transport home after the paddle, no flips, no problems, a very good first paddle for two of the Greenland Kayaks.
