I've been thinking Smurf, I'm happy to lend you the Venturer, but I'm feeling uneasy about its lack of a proper lighting setup - I'd hate for something bad to happen in the darkness at 4am. So how's this for a compromise - I'll still launch at 4, I'll bring along the venturer (I can fit it inside the wagon), and I'll arrange to meet you on the beach at a more gentlemanly hour, when the sun is well up - say 7 or 8am. We'll launch the Venturer and you can have a paddle and fish for a few hours.
This is a better idea for a lot of reasons - no danger from getting run down by stinkboats in a poorly lit yak the main one. Also, your first yak fish will probably be a bit tricky, getting the hang of dealing with a rod, paddle, as well as balancing, etc - it's better for your first trip to be in daylight hours.
Let me know what you think. :wink:
