According to one review, “Coming in at 13 feet long and 75 pounds unloaded, this power-packed fishing machine also boasts a 33-inch beam; three features which combined to birth Vibe’s claim that it’s a boat which should get you where you’re going quickly and let you stand to fish when you get there. An easily self-installed rudder system, which is included, adds precision turning to a boat which already tracks surprisingly well for being so long.”

We picked the kayak up at the donor’s house next to Three Mile Branch, which flows into the Withlacoochee River, on the Withlacoochee and Little River Water Trail.

I gave my usual speech, “Thank you very much, and you know this won’t stop us criticizing Valdosta.” The Mayor reminded me of that on his radio show: https://youtu.be/WlnOIhCaqRc
