Re: Putting a new handle on a fiberglass Werner paddle

... Michael Caine (Charlie) is covered in dames the whole time. Just dripping with aw shucks sex appeal. Terrible haircut, middling physique, mediocre sense of humor (humour), but maybe the girls know that he's going to be the future Michael "Tangerine" Caine. The car chase scenes are bonkers. They're ...

Re: L'Edge Superlight Outfitting

... over. Haven't yet looked at where or how. Not sure why the original comes with such a huge saddle/bulkhead and a single transfer tube. Didn't make sense to me. If there was a good reason for it, manufacturer's should include a little info on the reasons they have for the decisions they made. P.

Re: I need to demo some Millbrook boats.

Not at your age yet but understand the interest. I'm going to be looking hard at the Blink (Stink eye) since it matches what I paddle and I have paddled a couple and like its design and how it matches my paddling style .... so the 20/20 makes a lot of sense in my mind as to your search!

Re: Spring 2019 Armada

... of natural flow rivers were up in the area so that contributed to the low turn out. In brief conversations with other boaters in the NE I get a sense that there has been a noticeable drop off in numbers. Among the people I canoe with that seems less true. Like to here more about the Storm Giant.

Re: Condor vs Rebel

... waterline Rebel is lighter. Not just on what the manufacturers have weighted out and published, but noticeably upon picking them up. And it makes sense, for two main reasons. 1) SB does their own molding... These guys have been molding PE boats for over 10 years now. They have some of the best ...

Re: Covert vs Rebel Handling?

Thanks for the reply. Makes sense. If I was still in a place that was a little more gravity-assisted (BC), and paddling more often, the Agent 88 would be of interest, but back in the pool-and-drop prairies, a longer boat probably makes ...

Re: Covert vs Rebel Handling?

... thus giving it more usability. Believe it or not, but the Rebel weighs very close to what the Covert 9.3 weighs. Doesn't really make much sense for a boat that is 2ft longer and made of the same material... to shed some light on that - it's because 1) the Rebel is narrower than the 9.3 ...

Re: Looking for OC-1 in CA

I just had a sense that he really wasn't going to be an active OCer. I have NO contact info. Don't even remember his first name... He may have some ties to the League ...

Sold.......Esquif Raven For Sale $900

Re: "best" tripping boats?

Makes sense about it being the vinyl gunwale version. All the ones I have seen are the aluminum gunwale version and perhaps those were all marketed as Starburst and the vinyl gunwale as Cumberland.

Re: C1 to OC1 or not

Re: Outfitting advice for an old Rival?

... I've pulled the old stuff out and will start carving on the saddle in a day or two. From there I guess thigh and knee anchors make the most sense.

Rebuilding paddle blade

I've paddled (briefly) the Shacho a couple of times, but I haven't been in the Blink. I have a Millbrook Flashback, so I'm looking for something ...

Open canoe roll revised technique

I got a roll, when I want to :roll:, but demo-ing an Option & Octane 85 back to back defeated me this summer. Your tips made sense to me so I'll dial them in when I get a rematch. Learning how to roll a kayak hull this winter tuned up my lazy canoe, just good enough, hip snap. Probably ...
