So, despite being in the best location, with the best conditions, and the best boat, I still managed to not ride well. I guess every now and then this type of thing happens but it’s important to not get hung up on it. Tomorrow’s a new day. I hope you enjoy the vlog nonetheless and thanks for watching. David

Nonetheless, I hope you enjoy watching and big thanks to Craig for making the entire edit, to Ballyhass Lakes for having us, and of course to John who fixed the winch!
