Between sails and a brand new motor you should be well covered for auxiliary options, you could probably get by with a folding paddle, after all you've got sails and new outboard.

I think you're in for good times... congratulations!
Thanks! I see a lot of people like a jug. For me, I already have the AquaBound BilgeMaster from my sea kayaking gear. The are much smaller than a jug, float, and move enormous amounts of water. They are a fantastic product. As you can imagine there's no room for bailing in a kayak that's only 21 inches wide, 17 feet long, and enclosed. These things are literally life saving equipment.

Thanks again for the well wishes.
Go sailing now my brother,
It's later than you think.
