watch some old school paddling films. those guys were doing the same shit as you, in the same boats. you have not invented a new way of paddling. I am equally as stoked as you about paddling slicy boats, but I don't have the delusion that I was the first to do it. just because everyone paddles creek boats on the watauga now doesn't mean that it's always been that way. I truly respect your paddling skill, but you are a bit of a self-righteous douchebag and karma has its way of biting back.
PS you are lucky as hell to still own that forplay. I wanted to steal it at fishtop on sunday because it wasn't even tied down when you left it all day.
