Matthew was offered a slightly damaged kayak last year which he accepted and repaired.
Today was his maiden voyage.
Coming along for the ride was Andrew with a family friend in his canoe.
Matthew took the lead and headed out.
Meanwhile back on shore, the rest of the guys had a different type of boating experience.
James posed for a cute picture.
After about an hour's trip, they are almost back.
All are back safely and no wet people returned.
They all pronounced it a fun time!
