Aleut II

Another Valley boat! Four of us have pooled our resources to buy a lightly used Aleut II. We had it out last night on one of the local lakes to check it out a bit, and I brought along the Poseidon to use as a photo ship to record the maiden voyage. With two good paddlers in the boat ... this is about the only view I could get! It really is a performance kayak. It edges nice .. we never once needed to use the rudder to turn. I was getting a little carried away with the leaning, but nobody wanted to roll it last night. Hmm. I think it should roll just fine!
