b: a second skin

What: "The shore is now a sandy blur, the sleek kayak is like a second skin, and the only sound that matters to me on this late-summer afternoon is the rhythmic slicing of wood against water. Al and Betsie Anderson float nearby, watching from their needle-bowed boats."

A Huge Bobber For Fishing?

a: The kayak ~
b: a huge bobber

What: "The kayak is like a huge bobber they can't pull under, and it wears them out," Morrow said. "They were amazingly docile once they got close to the kayak," Bliss said. "They didn't do much jumping at all next to the kayak. You could reach out and touch them and they didn't spook or anything." The four kayak-caught sails ranged between 85-115 estimated pounds.
