Hi- Finally got the Solar II in the water this afternoon… Had some minor back surgery last week so I’ve been waiting to get wet! The boat is a dream! We paddled together for the first time- no worries! A bit tight quarters for a tandem, but I think removing the foot rests might help? Altogether we are very pleased… I am going to visit Glen Canyon to see Gretchen and Russ on the 2nd of October! He has scheduled us for a paddle trip from up river somewhere to a takeout at Lee’s Ferry. The boats should do well, hope the paddler’s are as able! I will call tomorrow or Thursday about the paddle.
