It took a while, but we finally finished these Sabalo's and put them in the water here at Norfork. They both floated. That is usually a good sign.

My wife and I left the ramp area and headed up the creek.

She told me she did not have time to pose for pictures. She had a new boat to try out.

Headed back to the ramp.

We are well pleased with these kayaks. They are very stable, reasonable fast, and maneuverable. We may need a second trailer for the White River trips we have planned. We haul our other kayaks on top of the car, in J-racks, but I have back problems and cannot lift these that high. I am considering a Harbor Freight trailer to use at the take out point. I may try to come up with a rack to haul both in the bed of the truck. They are obviously too wide to haul side by side, but I may try to build something to stack them one over the other in the bed.

They floated Terry" Looks to me like they floated with Style. That is a pair of good looking boats. You can be proud of those.

Yep, they passed the audition all right!

Trimmed as they are with the nose slightly up they look like they would cope with a reasonable surf launch. Would probably be a good all round fishing craft.

Do you plan on fishing from them or are they just for sightseeing and exercise?
