This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

February 22nd, 2012 · 2 Comments


More information to come after things are all wrapped up and finalized with all affected parties.

Unfortunately those are my kayak’s in the middle of I-5. The Soul River Kayak Fly Fishing Clinic we were hosting at Portland Kayak had to be cancelled in the very last minute. Both kayaks are destroyed, and, as it turns out, not covered by insurance. I’ve learned a lot about insurance this week, and I’m switching everything I have to a new company when this is all said and done….

But I digress. As I promised, I’ll be able to share more info with you when this is all said and done. I still don’t know what to do about the kayaks. That’s about $3000 in plastic that won’t be used again.

    Wow Isaac, this totally blows. Hope you can work things out and get back on the water soon. Sorry to hear the bad news.

    That sucks man, if you don’t mind me asking, what failed the rack or the saddles? My buddy had his Thule Rack fail and his kayak skidded across I-55 in Illinois. Luckily nobody was hurt and the kayak was not damaged.
