Re: Esquif Exite - Paddling Experience of Taller Paddlers

Scott did a review and he’s a tall guy. See link below.

You could reach out to him or the boat designer or Esquif Canoe and ask as well.

Re: Airbag Repair/Stem Replacement

You could try calling around to different paddling shops. You could try your local hardware / home building support store. You could even post to your local paddling area Facebook group an ISO float bag tubing and ask if anyone has an old leaky float air bag kicking around from which you could take ...

Re: Esquif Excite vs Silverbirch Covert 9.3

I can add, I’d definitely get a Silverbirch Covert 9.3 over an Esquif Detonator.

Re: Esquif Excite vs Silverbirch Covert 9.3

I’ve paddled the Esquif Extasy and I’d concur that it would be a very tight fix for you at 185 pounds.

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.
