Kayak Instructor Extraordinaire Michael D. Devlin giving a lesson this morning.
Our kayak trip with with Mike was even better than we had hoped. Mike gave us instruction before getting our kayaks in the water. We saw a lot of wildlife and learned a great deal about the mangrove trees and how they sustain life for micro organisms to birds, fish and animals. Mike was always mindful of our safety and endurance. Thank you for a fun adventure, Mike! Can't wait to get back to Naples! Go Tribe! Go Bucks!
If he sees his reflection, does that mean 6 more weeks of summer?

What happens when we lift a starfish out of water for an impromptu photo session?

All over the body of starfish are papules called dermal gills. Carbon dioxide gases are exchanged for oxygen between the coelomic liquid of the starfish and the water. Essentially, it’s how they breathe, like having hundreds of tiny noses all over your body.

As fresh air is toxic to starfish and they can’t hold their breath for very long, each time they’re lifted out of the water for a photo op, they are drowning and suffering from a build up of carbon dioxide. It’s the equivalent of someone filling your lungs with water for a little while and then emptying them again. It’s not a good day out. When this is done repeatedly, it’s a flip of the coin as to whether the poor creature can die from drowning or the stress of being semi-drowned so many times.

Wildlife are not our playthings. Just because a creature is slow enough to be caught by human hands, that doesn’t give us the right to do so, and the social media attention gained certainly does not justify the harm caused to the critter.

This is an act we’re all guilty of at some point. What was happening to that animal in the moment didn’t cross our minds. But now we know better, so we must do better.

Look

Don’t touch

Pygmy Coho Kayak
17’6” Long - 23” beam - 12” depth -
Only 47 lbs
Handcrafted from Okume Mahogany &
Fiberglass with Custom Redfish closed-cell foam seat
Front and rear hatches makes for roomy storage
Kayak was completely refinished 1 year ago. Only paddled twice since refinishing. Only reason I’m letting go of it is to make room for another project.
Kayak has always been stored indoors - see pics
$850 cash.
I’ve seen boats that are heavier, of lesser quality & difficult to maneuver online selling for more than I am asking... just ready to build my next ones
