Re: WTB: Drakker Wheelboy

Wheel Boy rocks for a play boat. It can run rivers too. at 190 it was good to go. Surfs well and I took its big brother down the LG with mega fun and SqueakyKnee has run the UG in one (WB) a number of times. Its a good buy and I will never sell mine. :-)

Re: Wood T-grip repair/maintenance and opinions for best pad

Yes, I have a Stanley surform tool much like the one you showed the link for... but I find that a rust grinding wheel for drill works better if you need to really get in and shave a large amount of foam... you have to be careful though not to go too big!

I was somewhat remiss in not mentioning that Big Al was the hub upon which this whole wheel turned. Thanks Big AL

Re: Which paddle is right for a newbie?gotta buy soon...help

Personally, I think the paddle makes a huge difference in how big I smile I have while paddling... its the gas pedal, the brake pedal and steering wheel for your boat. Right now my favorite is the H2O Team C-1 Carbon straight shaft.
