Saturday I didn't get on the water, but I did get some errands run. And there was an interesting news story in the local paper, about a pool noodle that was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Noodles! Is there anything they can't do? They make improvised cushions for roof racks for your kayak, or for strapping the kayak directly to a car's roof (for goshsakes be sure to tie down the bow too, eh?). They also make good sponsons or can be snaked into a sit-on-top to keep it from filling with water. Bits of pool noodle make good rope floats. Yup, they have many uses. And now the local paper has let us know yet another application for noodles.
