Over Memorial Day he did swim out after the fishing lure (cast from the shore) so that was a big improvement. I've had reports that he hopped right on the kayak yesterday and swam in the last 100 yards or so to the shore at the end of the ride.
His "Dad" thinks that if he had a life vest or a Personal Flotation Device (PFD) as they are called, that he'd be lifted slightly out of the water and therefore more confident. So I ordered one frome Abe's of Maine. Here are the photos:

He wore it swimming/kayaking on Friday & it worked really well!
