Lee, a co-worker at Vitesse, is the guy responsible for getting me interested in kayaking. He bought a similar kayak to mine years ago, but never finished it due to some assembly issues, and then because he got married, and then he went back to college, kids, etc. I bugged him to get his kayak out with me but he said that he didn’t have time to work on it, so I convinced him to let me finish the assembly and refinish the paint and varnish for him. Today I finished it. Tomorrow, I’ll return it to him. I think that he’ll be happy with the result.
