Brushed off the spiders, oiled her up, and we're off!! There were many big spiders, but none of them were black widows. Hoo-rah!
I only went out for about an hour. It was kind of windy, the tide was strong, and boy am I out of shape! But it was good, as it always is. Didn't see very many birds, just a few jumping mullets.
When I got back and washed everything down, the rudder cable came off. It's looking frayed. I suspect I should replace them very soon, but I do not know how, or where to get new cable. Hopefully the kayak store has it?? and can tell me what to do?? It appears as if you have to thread the cable through the inside somehow, and I am puzzled and uncertain of my skills.
