I look forward to to reading it. The magazine is on my coffee table.

Thank you for the kudos. That was a longtime ago that I helped port those posts over.

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

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

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.

Re: DRY SUIT RECOMMENDATIONS

Good points so far.

I'm a Kokatat user and fan. I've got years as in over a decade on my first suit. Well made. Plus good service.

There is definitely the possibility of buying a used dry suit.

Re: Good K hulls for C-1 conversion

C-1 hulls are great, go ZER go.

Wavesport EZ made a good conversion. EJ paddled it both as a kayak and C1.

Re: Prijon Delirious advice

Not wanting to sidetrack this thread but I loved Prijon’s kayaks for c1 conversions.

Here’s someone’s else’s 210-220 pd padddler take on the LUV. Probably a kayaker.
