The current tables predicted another 7.0 knot flood current at Deception Pass for this weekend so I loaded up my Shooting Star baidarka on the car and drove up in the morning. I had never seen the water level at Bowman Bay so low before. It was actually a bit of a hike across the beach to get to the water. While paddling to the Pass I noticed a number of rocks along the shore had been uncovered where you normally would find tidal rips at higher tide.
Afterwards we stopped by at the Skin Boat School and checked out one of the kayaks Maligiaq has been working on. Funny thing: Greenlanders build them just like we do! The the deck beams and gunwales are joined using square bamboo pegs (actually chopsticks). I noticed he used a little Gorilla Glue to hold the breasthooks in place.
