Hey Guys and gals.

I'm new. Just bought my first kayak, one week ago. It is an Old Town Sportsman 120 Auto Pilot. I've made 2 trips in it so far and had three trips @ Isle of Capri in a Hobie Outback. The kayak is great but heavy as lead. lol ... Takes me about 30 minutes to get it loaded into my van. Hardest part is getting the Kayak on the cart. I'm 73 and have some breathing issues but I've done it a few times now. Gonna buy some chocks so the cart doesn't roll back when I'm trying to set it on the cart. Kayak weighs about 130-140 when I load onto cart.

Mostly looking to make friends and be able to meet up and fish with others. I'm fishing out of Naples Florida. So far isle of Capri is the only launch site I've been to.

Look forward to meeting some of you.
