Re: Blackfly Condor

... a canoe, and I made it both times in the Condor, easily. On my Sunday run down the Upper Gauley, I dumped 5 times the entire run, including just twice getting to Lost Paddle. The Condor is also much easier to paddle in its production form than previous prototypes. The edges are still there to ...

Re: 20/20 At Zoar Gap On The Deerfield

... It jet ferries out of eddies as forcefully as my edgier boats. I think it is growing on me over time. I have to say I've only been out in ti twice this year, as I've been spending more time in my OC tandem with family and friends. The only thing I have not tried yet is side surfing. I've ...

Re: paddle shaft reinforcement question

12 inches up the shaft should be fine . I would use S-glass . Same weight twice the strength. The highest stress is at your shaft hand that forms a fulcrum.

I've lots of dynel sleeve. Send me you address and I'll send you some.

Solo canoe capable of camping but also up to class II

... river than the James. The river was pretty high and there were some rapids that scared me a bit, but I managed just fine. However I went swimming twice.... both times not from the rapids but from tree branches along the bank that I hit sideways. First time the canoe dumped me out but did not capsize. ...

Re: tandem rolling

... roll right in our C1s. So we always roll on the right. In the stern, I switch my paddle and do the standard C boat roll. At first, I would tap twice on the bottom of the boat to signal that I was ready to roll. That worked for the timing of the roll, but took a bit too much time. If we missed ...

Burn 3 conversion

The Pyranha Burn has always received top marks as a C-1 conversion. But the Burn design has been tweaked, at least twice. I believe the current offering is, like, Mark 3 (?) The current ads and reviews suggest "more river-runner, less creeker", sharp chines, better tracking but ...

I have a FNA helmet, which is bomb-proof, but twice the weight of an old plastic hat I've worn for years. Lastly, THANKS, Pea Pod for raising this issue. I've always found it expedient to blame ...
