Re: Murky Waters

You already have a Groove. I don't see anything else in his list that I thought you'd be interested in. Is there something that's not listed?

Re: DIY - Bow Foot Brace

I used to paddle bow in a Penobscot. We put a sliding seat in the bow to get the trim right. Then I fitted & glued a couple of chunks of mini-cell foam in the bow for a foot brace. 1st piece in was shaped to the bow as a spacer. I braced off the 2nd piece, which was taller & wider. I think the piece...

The ability to add a photo directly from your computer hasn't always been there. It was added a while back to make it easier for folks to share photos. I think it's location causes folks to miss it.

Re: C1 conversion: straps v. bulkhead

The Team ETC thing is a generic set of plans w/ templates. The templates allow you to cut slots in the plastic sheet (sold separately) to thread straps though. The slots are your anchors. Pretty neat idea. I used that set up in a Big EZ & it worked fine. You can set up your anchor points exactly whe...

Re: C1 conversion: straps v. bulkhead

You can make the bulkhead out of foam. If you make it a little larger than it needs to be to 'fit', it'll be a nice, snug fit that requires no hardware. You can twist it out to get to your lunch. Add the bungee to hold your water-bottle in place. I like a bulkhead & lap-belt combo, but not everyone ...

Re: need photo of a glassed-in anchor

Here is a shot of my water jug anchor. I like to see the frayed ends of the rope while I'm working & when I'm done. I sand the hull till it gets fuzzy. Tape the center of the rope w/ masking tape, leaving the ends untapped so I can fray them. Cut a slit in s-glass patches for the ends of the rope to...

Pogies are warmer than gloves. If its too cold for pogies, I recommend boxes. :-)

Re: big hands seek winter paddling warmth?

Pogies. I modified Bob Putnam's design. He designed them to be water tight, which makes it difficult to get the top hand in & out. With my version, the shaft hand is still pretty much water tight. The top is not. My top hand only gets wet when I roll. My 2nd modification allows the top pogie to drai...
