sportstertim: You need a longer paddle, your strokes are too high angle with that one.

brockpierce1984: seems like  great idea.

I build myself also a fixed rudder on my sit-in fiberglass kayak but mine is going a bit deeper in the water and is easy removable. I havent tried it yet but I hope it will have the same effect as yours.

Its very exhausting to fight the kayak to go straight

uberfy: Yes, it is more difficult to turn. But that's the idea.

dennis mako: is it harder to make turns with the fixed rudder,i have the same boat and theres times the wind and current turn me almost sideways

uberfy: @StealY0urFace Absolutely! Without the extra rudder, I was constantly having to double paddle on one side or the other to keep a straight line in the water. My 12.5 foot model is designed for stability while fishing I think. Once I added the fixed rudder, it was easy to go straight. In fact, I had to work really hard to turn, more like the longer 14 and 15 foot models that I have used in the past.

StealY0urFace: does it really make that big of a difference? thinking about installing one on my Mainstream Kingfisher

Серафима Сваровская: Согласна на счет овсянки, но не будешь же ее есть каждый день. Я обычно чередую ее с другими кашами -гречкой, рисом и т.д. А в остальном советы очень полезные, надо будет взять на вооружение. Еще могу посоветовать во время снижения веса включить в свой рацион такие полезные вещества, как пробиотики. Я делаю кисломолочный продукт на основе пробиотической закваски "Слим" от Бакздрав. Он хорошо воздействует на ЖКТ, нормализуется микрофлора кишечника, восстанавливается липидный обмен, в результате в организме синтезируется естественный жиросжигатель.

jtric04: you have a point but you could have more impact to those victims, if only you filed a case. that you could have just fought that one person then they too would speak up about injustice like this because someone brave took the risk. it would be hard to change the system but it can be broken by action. regards and i hope everyone will continue to fight for one another.
mazzman11: Glad to see you found a reputable installer to design and install a solar pool heating system for you. The installer and design makes all of the difference in the system meeting your needs. Also kudos to you for taking the time to post your feedback on the product, and your experience with the contractor. Curious, how many referrals have you received from this?
