Finally, it could happen to me...

Yes, it's a lovely sunny day and after Paula got in from her paddle, we were cleaning up the yard. Pretty much on the spur of the moment, we decided to put the creek boat out at the road with a for sale sign on it. Within the hour, a young man named Joel had stopped to enquire about it. I took him down to the beach and put him behind the paddle while his mother and I watched, and he LOVED the boat. And, I must say, it seemed to love him back. He's in his early teens, so the boat really suited him--good initial stability without sacrificing much in the way of manoeuvrability. It even decided to track nicely for him! So his dad's on the way with $50 and a truck, and it looks like the paddling community has a new member.
