Talked with a guy in Saturday at Albion that was doing a 12 hour paddle.  He was an NCKA member.  The swell was bad by 12-1 when I came in.  His car was still at the launch...

Anyone know Ron?

OMG! We'll pray and we hope that's not him !!!

That's the guy!  Wow, I hope it's not him.  I was the last person to see him as he took off!

Looks like he was online, must not have been him!  Good!

I met Ron earlier this year in Mendo.  To the best of my recollection he was on a yellow hobie outback (not 100% sure I remember correctly).  Anybody got an update on the model/color of the boat that washed-up?

I sent Ron a PM - anybody have an email or phone number for him?

Our store tried getting back in contact with the fire department all afternoon but no answer.  I'll be on it first thing in the morning and I'll post as soon as I know anything.

He was active on the forum last night so he's probably ok
Hate to say it, but if he shared a computer it could have been someone else at home.  Hoping that i'm not right...

I'll try to get some info.

OK, so here's what I know so far.  Albion Fire got back to us this morning and said the boat is a blue or teal Ocean Kayak.  Didn't give us the model however.  They will hopefully be calling us back with a serial number soon so we can determine who we sold the boat to.  Just hoping still that this was just a boat that got away and not something worse.

I'll keep you all posted.

Not looking good guys, if it was one of our own, they would have piped up, or someone would have. That color is old. Any local reports of missing persons?
