Hi All,

Hello to everyone here. I've just joined the forum, and hope to get to know a few of you.

Although I've had kayaks in the past (Hobie's), I've been without one for the last couple of years.
The wife pushed me into buying another one a few weeks ago, so spent ages looking at which one to buy.
Ended up getting one with a raised seat, and seems like a very good choice. Very comfortable.

So far I've taken it out a couple of times - a couple of small sessions on Lake Taupo where I caught 3 trout.
A couple of weeks ago took it out on the North Shore and caught 1 Snapper.

I've spent last weekend and this weekend (couldn't do much else in the rain) working on it fitting a motor and a bit extra customization.
I'm glad to say that I'm all ready for next weekend (because I'm sure we'll have better weather!)

I look forward to sharing some stories over the next couple of months.
