Thank you Starr Crocker!

Quick update-

Perception Kayaks came through! They replaced my kayak after hearing about the leaky rear hatch cover. I want to especially thank Starr Crocker at Perception for taking the lead in making all this happen. Also, Barney, our gear guy, for coordinating all this with Starr. Amazing!

The new kayak has been delivered and secured in Sarasota FL. I will pick it up there and complete this journey in my standard yellow yak.

All the best,

    That’s great news, Marc! My first kayak was a 9.5 ft. Perception Sundance and I put 300 miles on it the first year. I would love to have a long sea kayak and I’m becoming more and more impressed with yours as your journey continues. The fact that you didn’t completely swamp when the rear hatch was defective and taking on water says a lot about your skill as a paddler AND the perception yak. Hope your new yak takes very good care of you. Love hearing from you 2guys as you paddle around Florida. Some folks dream the dream or live the dream…you guys are paddling the dream! Inspiring and motivational for me as a big river/long distance paddler wannabe!!!! Thanks for sharing and allowing us to travel along vicariously. Paddle on!!!
