The boat will also follow paddlers as they make their way along the water trail, allowing people a safe, warm place to turn back to if they run into trouble or become too tired during their trip. Pictured Rocks Kayaking first began offering open-water kayak launching on Lake Superior several years ago -- but the companys first boat was a retrofitted retired cruise boat, which meant it didnt offer all the functionality its owners dreamed of for their customers.
