Re: Not my boat (millbrook?)

Glad to oblige. I would definitly be down for a Millbrook armada. that would be very cool. Would certainly warrant some beatin the bushes when organizing. It seem crazy but around here there are still glass only guys who get mad when I so much as mention plastic boats lol. I imagine NY much the same...

Re: Not my boat (millbrook?)

Phew...14hr driving round trip to get the boat yesterday. But it was all worth it. Wood is fair but can be refinished. Otherwise, it a barely scratched time capsule.

Re: Please don't flame...paddle shortening question....

nuthin wrong with shortening, but I suggest try it as sized for a while. paddle is a lever basically, and u want it to maximize the energy ur putting into it, especially in a more classically sized (12-16ft) canoe if u dont have, or dont want to purchase a punch set as suggested above, get a finishi...

I say stiff putty ...
