Call Me Mr. Blue

We have a "new to us" kayak we call Mr. Blue.

Our good friend John found Mr. Blue abandoned on the shore while boating at the head of Jervis Inlet. After a year sitting at John's cabin, we made him an offer he couldn't refuse. Now Mr. Blue rides along our transition float ready to go into action at a moment's notice.

Mr. Blue is a double Ocean Kayak built in Ferndale, Washington. It's a Malibu Two and it is what I call a "sit on" model. It is perfectly suited for paddling as a single or double. Wayne heads out with his fishing pole to troll for lake trout. I love to explore the shoreline to see if there area any treasures or useful items.

  2. Cute kayak! Hubby and I are interested in purchasing one.

  3. What a great find! I love the reflection in the second photo.

  4. Great post. I cannot believe it was just abandoned it looks like it is good shape.

  8. This is a very pretty blue kayak. I can't believe someone would just leave that. CRAZY! Lucky for you!

  9. Thanks to everyone for visiting my "blue" post. Even in the summer we can get some pretty windy storms. Rather than someone purposely abandoning the kayak I surmise it got detached from its boat and floated away out of sight. But yes, it was a lucky event for us. - Margy
