I've come to the reluctant conclusion that our Kayaks may be victims of our big boat. Pilgrim is not large enough to store them onboard and our next (larger) boat may not have an elegant stowage capability for them.  We will have a Rib (maybe two - a light and slow one, and heavy and fast one), so I'm thinking that the Kayaks just won't get used as I had originally intended them to be....
