Re: Putting a new handle on a fiberglass Werner paddle

I tend to use West Systems for just about everything, in part because I have the cans and pumps and that makes it really easy. I suspect given the materials you are working with just about any 2 part epoxy is going to work; just be sure you rough the surfaces up a bit if they are smooth and or gloss...

Re: Free Downloads Kent Fords Drill TIme and Solo Playboating

Thank you Kent!

I've copied the post here and left it in CVideos as well.

I have my well-watched copy of Drill Time from years ago:)

Under rated boats...

I was thinking of all the boats in the collection today, and all the discussion over the years of the "best" boat (here, Facebook, other forums, etc...). Admittedly it very much depends on what you are looking for - two of my long term favorite boats are the Shaggy Sith and Frachella designed Viper ...

Re: Paddling Magazine article

A few folks know, mostly I just watch the for sale boards:) The one boat I'd really like to find is an Aerobat, as it is interesting to see the progression ending in the Acrobat that so many of us like. Other boats include a Meltdown (UK boat, not sure I'll ever find one), a Shaggy Jedi, and at leas...

Paddling Magazine article

I'm humbled by the article and comments in this issue! I enjoyed talking to Ian and discussing the collection as well as CBoats.net, but unfortunately some of the folks we chatted about who are integral to getting CBoats.net to where it is were left out of the article (there is only so much space, b...

Re: Hornet and Magnet comparisons

Here is a little information: https://www.cboats.net/c_db/list.php?type=1&alpha=M&boat_id=111&name=Magnet I'd forgotten I need to measure the Magnet; I have one out of the "new" mold (Class V composites has a mold now...). Plenty of volume (more than the Hornet). The Hornet is faster though, as has ...

Re: Hornet and Magnet comparisons

Great review - thank you for taking the time to share!

Now I'm even more curious to hear what you'd think of an Amoeba;)

Tomahawk C2 and Wildwater C1 for sale

I've decided it is time to move on a few boats that are not part of the core CBoats collection (race boats I don't seem to paddle any more). -Upstream Edge Tomahawk C2 - nice and light, I"m pretty sure Kevlar in the hull and it definitely has a foam core deck. Center cockpits, but originally set up ...

Re: C1 and C2 for sale - Update

After 3 years hard to say.

I'm about to post up a Upstream Edge Tomahawk C2 for sale (nice layup, foam core deck, good shape) for $800. PM if interested, otherwise I'll post it up here eventually. Located in upstate NY.

I have a Slasher... and about 40 other C1s. My wife would say your disease is preferable to mine;)

Re: FS: Perception Slasher (Red) Central NY $350?

Wanting a Slasher is indeed insane! I haven't seen one pop up for sale in a while, but they are out there and I suspect if you keep asking you'll find one (most folks have given up trying to sell them;) ).

Re: River Elf Storm Giant

Thank you for the full report! I'll add a few comments, though your review is much more complete than mine will be at this point (and the two of you have far more time in C2's!) I've had my Storm Giant out once now (North Branch of the Potomac) and it performed well. Stable, and amazingly comfortabl...

Re: Spring 2019 Armada

A nice fun run on Saturday - they had plenty of water so it was a 1500 CFS release which was a lot of fun. Not too many folks on the river that day (admittedly it IS April, but I don't think there were a dozen cars in the put in parking lot).

Camping at Paddler's Lane in Confluence was great too.
