    they do say if you fall off the horse you should get back on.
    guess he decide to follow that advice but

    that's one funny looking horse

    Although, as a rule, the horse is not going to try to eat you :)

    for sure

    I have too much respect for the ocean to play around in a kayak. My 20 footer is still marginal in anything but the calmest seas.

    I go kayaking and fishing in my Emotion Glide Sport on the Sound and have no problem. To use a kayak in the ocean for fishing you wand it to be wide for the most stability.

    In a way yes. I carry a waterproof bag with a first aid kit, 2 fire starters, a knife, a bag of cotton balls, and a multitool.

    Just saw some funny shark-encounter vids the other day - one of which a rather large shark decided to attack a zodiac type craft - chomping through the inflatable bladder. Bit of an "oh $h!t" moment for those on the boat, taking the video. :eek:

    Then there was the dude with a big sail fish on, when what seemed to be a great white decided said sail fish was HIS. All the guys on the boat got was the dead. Cap'
    n of the boat was pissed and barking orders to get the fish in, like the poor guy on the rod & reel could just winch it in... o_O

    I think the sail fish guys were from New Zealand or Australia, they had that type of accent.
