At first, I’d been concerned these folks in green kayakers were holding the wall for stability.

Then later I saw this and realized that the Chicago River has so much current that

one guide’s role in a “muster” is to paddle up current to keep the raft from heading for the Mississippi.

And this styling?

It only made sense when I saw them again in the Straits….

I believe this is a Ranger 21 . . .

nice, but maybe having an exhilarating day.

And recreational fishing, there’s a lot of it in

the lake and its bays

all day long.
