Welcome Aboard! There is a lot of info on this site that should be helpful to you. Like CW said above just search Metroman or kayaks and you should be busy and or entertained for hours. As far as being a redneck goes, there are some on here that claim to be rednecks and there are others of us that prove it! (You may want to add a few coat hangers to your fix-it kit in case you have more structural repairs that need to be made). Don't forget to post reports and pics! No report or claim is legit w/o pics!
Good Luck! Stay Safe!
