How We Got Our New Kayak

Some time ago I wrote about the advantages of the simple kayak, explaining that the kayak for us is not just for fun or for sport, but it is also a clean, silent, shallow-drought alternative to the dinghy, capable even of pulling the catamaran, when needed.

When our 15-years-old kayak Agent Orange cracked because of the UV damage and old age, it became clear that we needed a new kayak. Just then the guys from KayakShop.BG decided to give us a kayak! We started selling this new kayak which was in Bulgaria, in order to be able to buy one here in Puerto Rico with the money from the sale (because to send a kayak by mail is a bit complicated).

Only a few days later, someone bought the kayak! So now we got a new one- Agent Orange Junior.

A random guy we met on the street helped us to bring the new kayak from the shop 10km away on top of his old car for $20

But the not-so-random guy who bought the kayak back in Bulgaria turned out to be a legend, holding a world record for moto-paraplannerism.

But this is not all. Venelin Staikov is also an engineer and the owner of a company Solar Home distributing solar installations for hoes and businesses in Bulgaria. His own house is off the grid using entirely solar energy.

Here is what you may read on Solar Home website:

We are a young company, established in 2012, that specializes in design, construction, and maintenance of photovoltaic systems. We partner with leading international suppliers of equipment, that make no compromise with the quality of modules, inverters, and components. Our photovoltaic systems ensure a reliable electricity production for over 25 years with minimal maintenance.

Thus, we got our new kayak, we met a legendary person who also shares our passion for solar energy and we made  friends with the guys at KayakShop.BG, without whom none of this would happen.
