The plan is to modify the boat and add a top to carry kayaks and canoes just like our car carries them on a rack. This will allow us to get to the coast on Friday night without the need for a hotel or a night paddle to a campsite to set up a tent. Then on Saturday morning we are already where we want to paddle and we have a nice bed, kitchen, and shower nearby.
It will often be a mother ship for our kayaks and we are also naming it after our mothers.
Other than the hardtop we have a lot of work to do to get this 40 year old boat in good shape. But like our 54 year old house it has good bones and is worth fixing up.
