  1. Tarpon 140

    I have a Tarpon 100, Tarpon 140 and Tarpon 160i (Yes, I know that's excessive).  All three are great boats.   The Tarpon 100 was bought for my wife who wanted something to fish in at the beach.  It's short so it's easy to launch and land in the surf.  It's as slow as a turtle and a rudder wasn't an option for it at the time but it works great both on the beach and on rivers. The Tarpon 140 is faster than the 100 but slower than the 160.  The rudder keeps it going straight and the greater width makes it more stable than the 160.  This is great for bay fishing when you don't plan on paddling a great distance. The Tarpon 160i is the fastest of the three and works great in the bay. I can paddle for miles in this. I've used it in the surf but I wouldn't recommend it for that if it is something you do much.  It's not as stable as the 140 but it hasn't really been a problem for me. All that said, the last time I took the 160i out I was with a group of people and one of them had a Hobie with the pedal drive in it.  After a 1.5 mile return trip against the wind, I was seriously jealous of that guy because he was going faster and didn't seem to be trying all that hard.
  2. 5th Annual CLAPS Moonlight Paddle Event 12/6

    That's the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered rodent you ever set eyes on!

    That's no ordinary rabbit.
  4. Hey! Where are all the pics from Geocoin Fest ?

      I've got your goodie bag with your shirt, coins and stuff.  You've still got time to claim it before the ebay auction ends!
  5. CLAPS Cachin' on the Bayou Post-Mega Paddle Event

    I haven't had a chance to do one of these CLAPS events yet but I just kind of assumed that the GZ was at the launch point.  
  6. We Rock! Challenge Score Information

    I would be willing to help with that too if needed.  People shouldn't have to think twice about if their score counted accurately or if there was any wrong-doing involved.  A state like Texas deserves better in my opinion.   Hopefully this affected all regions equally and didn't change the outcome.  Either way, I had a fun time despite the problems and will not let it put me off of participating in the future.  
  7. TEXAS CHALLENGE 2016

      I think it's too far east to call it part of Central Texas and closer to Houston than it is Austin, so Brenham is fair game IMO.
  8. CLAPS 2014 Spring Paddle CITO (Sun. 4/27)

      She's earning the name Sparky, that's for sure.     Edit: Wait a minute.  I got that wrong.  I guess you should be Sparky!
  9. TEXAS CHALLENGE 2016

    I like the idea of Galveston. There is a good variety of caching environments in the area. It's a longer drive for most in the state though. Out of curiosity, what locations has SETX hosted the event in the past?
  10. I have a site reserved for Friday night and Saturday night at Bastrop SP, Copperas Creek section.   It's just me so if there is anybody who needs a place to set up their tent, just let me know.  I only snore when I'm asleep.
  11. SETX Hunt Team T shirts 2014

    I know you've already put the order in but if you end up with an extra xl, I'll take it.
  12. Here Kitty, Kitty - 01/26/2014

    If anyone wants to give the "Shaken Not Stirred" puzzle a shot I'd be happy to answer any questions.  Skip over the verbiage in the page until it starts talking about Pai Gow Poker.  Everything above that was superfluous.  If you know how to play Poker, you can learn Pai Gow Poker.  If you can learn Pai Gow Poker, you can solve the puzzle.  Or you could just "brute force" it.
