The wife (Shari) and I paddled 68 miles in our Bayrunner fiberglass tandem sot, at this year’s Watertribe Ultra marathon. Took us 14 hours.
I have done the 50-mile Suwannee river race last year, and this year’s 44-mile Suwannee river challenge (water was low and they had to change the route) in my Skua. Both races took me just under 9 hours. The wife also did this years Suwannee river challenge in 9:02 she was the only women this year and got 15th out of 21 paddlers. Was a great time but I now need to read your links to gelcoat repair, there were quite a few rocks on the Suwannee this year.
Carter and his wife won the 300 mile WT Everglades Challenge last year in a double surfski, took them 3+ days, that is a long time to spend in a surfski! The wife and I are going to run the Everglades Challenge next March.
Captain you still paddling your ski? You have not mentioned it lately. We got a couple and have been learning how not to fall out of them.
