    1. Yeah, Melt! We were doing really well until we crashed into some kelp. Not the same keel, at all!

  2. Happy to see you back in your element.
    Regards kelp, the Schock 40 is steered with fore and aft blades rather than a single rudder. They have a kelp cutter which consists of a rod with an articulated blade (like a pocket knife) at the end. Encountering kelp one pushes the rod through a hole at the tip of the steering blade and lowers it down then squeezes a handle which deploys the blade which then cuts the kelp as you raise the rod back up.
