There are quite a few sources for thwarts and seats and seat hardware but a reasonably priced one is Essex Industries:www.essexindustries.org. If the frames of your cane seats are still sound, sand and revarnish them and convert them to web seats, which are almost as comfortable, and last a lot long...

Like you my first whitewater experiences were in an OC1. I got lazy, went to K1 and now bounce back and forth depending on water temp and who I am paddling with. I am a little smaller than you and comparable in skill level. I don't do anything harder than Class IV. Since I have already accumulated a...

You might add the Mohawk Shaman to the list, as it is a good design and, theoretically, at least, is available new, depending on how Mohawk Canoes current travails sort themselves out. For the matter of that, if you are looking for something "stodgy" but forgiving, you might consider the Mohawk XL 1...

I paddled years ago with a very good boater who cut recesses into the sides of his pedestal to act as footpegs. Most of the time he paddled without foot support, but in difiicult rapids where a roll or serious brace was a liklihood, he pointed his feet inward into the recesses to anchor his feet. It...

That information is correct. I spoke with Greg today at that phone number (877 266-6329). He hopes that the web site will be back up and running later today, but that is in the hands of the domain host, obviously. Mohawk Canoes is alive and well, however, which I was relieved to hear, since they hav...

You might want to check out the Mohawk canoe web site. It has quite a bit of information from Harold Deal, the boat's designer, regarding its design characteristics and recommended paddling techniques. I can't claim to be a great boater, but I did have the opportunity to try out Harold's glass Shama...

Dagger Prophet - backwards?

Hello all. I am soliciting advice on outfitting my Prophet. Those of you who have owned this boat know it to have a highly-rockered, asymmetrical hull. I have heard of some folks outfitting the boat so as to paddle it stern first. I am reoutfitting my boat, and the longer I look at the hull, the mor...
