  1. I have that same knife. It was my dad's.
  2. I'll try beet juice next. I was a 4 finger bourbon a night fellow and really had to stop. I have found that unsweetened 100% tart cherry juice has a ton of complex bite and sour notes that really help trick my taste buds at night. Pomegranate juice too. The beet juice sits down on the same unpopular shelf at my grocery. I've been really curious to give it a go. I think I'm at around a month alcohol free.
  3. Plenty of light/ no air in that race. Lots of drifting backwards if you aren't on the pedals.

    If you're only using human power in the harbor, you're never getting to Ketchikan.
  5. I'm going to sell my SC27, just trying to figure out a fair price.

    Also, SE Alaska is basically closed. We aren't even really allowing community to community travel. Since we started to see our cases later than the lower48, I suspect our lockdown may persist longer than yours. That is, unless you just want to come on up, do a loop around Pennock Island and head south again. Everything is hooped this year. One the bright side, I now have a really great reason to get Serenity back to cruising weight.

    Looks really good. It's super relaxing looking off the transom and pedalling.

    That's a Santa Cruz 27. With those drives we could do 3 knots fairly easy, but she is pretty light. My drives were wilderness system with stock props.

    You might have good luck talking to a guy that does aluminum work for fishing boats. That's what I did for mine. I bolted this right through the super thin transom to wide plywood backing plates. The main mount point was the existing SC27 outboard bracket. (pretty scoukum) the floorplate easily held the weight of two men and had no flex for the drive units.

    2016 start in PT, Copter was fighting for sailboat space. Sailboats weren't impressed.

    If you have the real estate, mount both of them. Totally worth it.
