    *slaps forehead*  “Gun-Whale”…

    Great Geartasting as usual!  That is some serious dedication to kayaking.  I’m not going to lie, I must be lazy, jumping in my Ocean Kayak Trident 13 after putting some rod holders in and go.  That is really cool though.

    • bullitt4686 I knew I’d catch it for that one LOL! That’s not how I pronounce it, I say gunnel, but was afraid landlubbers wouldn’t know what I’m talking about. I deserve to catch flack though 🙂

      What’s REALLY funny, is that while I was watching the gear tasting, even the wife unit was like “Wasn’t he in the Navy??”  Man, I love that woman!

    • bullitt4686 *sigh* guilty.
