...Anyone interested in yakin' in the dark or splashing around in deep water might want to catch "Air Jaws" on the Discovery Channel 8PM ET (2000) on Sunday 17 March...
It's not "paranoia" if they really are trying to get you!

I love that show.

By the way, the seal stencil and flipper attachments you sent for the bottom of my yak showed up.

Are you sure this will increase my ability to catch fish?

Didn't the Eskimos use seal skins streched over a frame as a yak. Hunting whales while chewing on blubber. I'm more worried about the seals their predators.

I did see that show. WOW! Those aerials rivaled the free style ski jumps in the olymics.

For the record, I strongly resent any comparison to Richard Cookiepuss. ;) :razz:

There's an interesting product out there called Bordners' Shark Attack...Capt Bill Brown gave me 1/2 gal (bunker oil). He uses it to help form a shark attracting slick, but I think it might help my yak slide through the water with less "resistance"...
Anybody want to go for an evening test paddle in the channel?

I'll stick to my fifths of 20 year aged pogie oil thanks! ;)
