Monica and I did a short and quick test paddle of the inflatable Feathercraft Java that I am planning to take with us on our upcoming trip to Lake Powell. It paddle nicely with both of us in it as well as singly. The skeg definitely makes a difference! Looking forward to using it in Lake Powell!
Dan, Paulo and I went for a morning paddle out to the islands. Conditions were good, though there was a strong ebb which made for some fun waves in Baynes and around Seabird point. You can also see how fast we were going on the outward journey. There were a few sea lions around, including a big male Steller sea lion on the rocks south of Rudlin Bay. We saw the park ranger patrolling - probably checking on the wolf, who was nowhere to be seen.
