Re: skid plats and plastic deck/gunnels on a rival

Have you weighed it? Did you weigh your old MR Outrage? The 2001 Dagger catalog lists the Rival at 43/40 lbs (wood/vinyl). That's probably Rolayex, not the RX lite/light version. But I'm sure you could swap out the gunwales for wood and save weight. See here: https://www.madrivercanoe.com/us/custome...

Re: Recommendation for river runner C1

The liquidlogic Mullet at 9' long x 26.25" wide sounds great for a C1.

Re: The Hype is Real: A Review of the Waka Sneeze

At 26.5” wide that seems perfect for a C1.

Re: Thigh straps vs lap belt pros and cons

You can probably find some relevant information using the search feature. I find that thigh straps work better in Open canoes than Decked boats. And that lap belts are better at keeping my butt secure to a C1 saddle. The main difference is my OC1s all have foot pegs whereas my C1s don’t. I glue a th...

Re: Newbie outfitting questions for Mohawk XL 13

Welcome Occasionally people post float bags or thigh straps for sale here. Float bags, try NRS or Fallline canoes (high end). Thigh straps, I like North Water, https://northwater.com/collections/thigh-straps Yes the upper thigh strap connects to the double D ring, see video https://m.youtube.com/wat...

Re: New Rigging?

As far as I know, it’s foam saddles with thigh straps, knee pads and foot pegs or a foam bulkhead with knee pads and foot pegs. Less common are foam ankle wedges/lifts/blocks/supports, which might help improve your comfort during long days in the saddle. I’m also feeling it after a self-supported 4 ...

Re: Trouble rolling wavesport EZ c1

I also only used a lap belt in my EZ C1.

I’ve never found thigh straps keeping my butt down (or up) when rolling C1s.

But thigh straps do work well in OC1.

Re: Trouble rolling wavesport EZ c1

I find the EZ a great C1 and easy to roll. I do move my body forward and pull the C1 under me more compared to rolling an OC1. I find that once you get to boat past a certain point (it's edge) it just falls over and you are up whereas the OC1 is slower and you must follow through more at the end oth...

Re: youth paddle

I too was thinking along the lines of Sir Adam--find a broken or used ww paddle, trim the blade smaller and cut down the shaft to the appropriate length.

You should contact all the ww paddle manufactures and ask them if they make kid sized ww paddles.

River Rescue Essentials: Build Your Own Super Compact Rescue Kit

I had an article published in Paddling Magazine called, River Rescue Essentials: Build Your Own Super Compact Rescue Kit

https://paddlingmag.com/skills/safety-r ... escue-kit/

It's relevant so I hope a bit of self promotion is permissible.

Re: C1 conversion bulkhead questions

I used to glue down a thin sheet of foam. It helped to insulate and keep my feet warmer but it also provided a bit of toe resistance or grip compared to the slippy plastic inside hull. That might help you stay a bit tighter but still make it easy to release your feet.

Re: Shortening an H2O C1 Paddle

It seems like a lot of work, to shorten a paddle 1”. How long will it take you to wear down the blade an inch? Can you swap paddles with someone? Trade for a 57”? Buy a shorter replacement paddle and use the 58” as your spare? Can you convert your paddle into a take a part/breakdown by cutting the s...

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.
