Well it should be ready enough - i took the paddleboat from the lake to the river dock (maybe a mile) yesterday and it did pretty well. No weeds collected and i went thru somee doozies. The paddle seized some and motor got hot but added lube so no biggie. This afternoon i'm hoping to take it downriver. After making sure it will start, i'll just drift and cast my way down to the 3rd corner, (fish gather down there about dark) then it has to run or i'll be rowing back and not sure i can. I thought about taking a duckbill pole but opted for a hatchet instead - that way i can whack anything from a pole to a cabin if need be. This could be fun. :)

DC go up stream instead. You are always better to be up S Creek with out a paddle than down it. Then you can just go with the flow back home.
