Re: S T R E T C H I N G

I used to have a spare saddle that I'd use at home in preparation for paddling season, but a volleyball etc. would also work.

Re: Advice on removing glued plastic D rings

<t>Not totally relevant, but are you removing a seat with thigh straps and foot pegs, and replacing it with a saddle? Maybe you could leave the D-rings and/or the foot pegs??? BTW, I'm a fan of solo whitewater tripping canoes. <br/> <br/> Most D-rings patches are not plastic but vinyl, but there are...

Re: Buying Advice

If you are looking for lighter!

Then the Millbrook 20/20.

Any Blackfly canoe will be heavy.

Re: Varathane or Varnish for Flatwater Canoe canoe?

If you already have the varathane I’d say go for it.

You could do a test. Try some varathane on a thwart for instance to see how it adheres to the current finish.

Of course, scrape, peel, sand, stripe etc. the old finish to remove all loose bits. Clean. Dry.

Re: What are you nifty water bottle carrier setups for a small solo canoe with bulkhead?

Keez, great idea. Don’t over think things: tape, carabiner, bottle. Simple.

I like to have all gear secured. I know paddlers have lost gear that was stuffed under airbags but not clipped in.

Didn’t know Shaggy Designs made break-downs. “ Both the shafts can be made into breakdown paddles upon request as ...

A 3 piece paddle fits crosswise against the saddle.

I put it into a mess bag and clip it in.

Re: What are you nifty water bottle carrier setups for a small solo canoe with bulkhead?

Lots of options.
I’ve made a hole in the bulkhead.
I’ve also shaped out the side of foam and used a bungee to secure a water bottle. Done that on both sides of the saddle forward as well as a just a single one in front.
On one C1 I did use a bike water bottle cage.

Re: C1 Conversion and recommended "Paddler Weight"- Need Advice!

In general, if I'm boating with kayakers then I like a C1 that is slightly longer than what the kayakers are paddling because it's a bit faster of a boat that helps make up for my single blade. And in general, because of the higher centre of gravity when paddling C1s, a slightly wider boat is prefer...

Re: C1 Conversion and recommended "Paddler Weight"- Need Advice!

What are the boat specs for dimensions? Sometimes a little wider or longer is better for a C1.
Volume-wise, I might go for the smaller volume as C1 paddler weight is very centred.
