    Northern Light Paddle Loom

    Wanted: a NLP loom 15" or greater. I believe they go up to 18". Would prefer a longer length. The measurement I refer to is not the total length, but the grip length ie a 13" loom is 22" overall. I'd also consider a whole paddle if the loom was long enough.

    SOLD! - Nimbus Telkwa (Kevlar!)

    I learned to roll in this kayak and it has been on a few west coast trips. I switched over to skeg boats so the Telkwa hasn't been used for a while. It is in good shape, and has never been dragged over beaches. New seat, hatch straps, and paddlefloat straps. See pictures for the extra...

    SOF rolling kayak

    Has anyone built a skin on frame kayak with a very low back deck? 1.5" or less rear deck freeboard? I've given up on my Tahe Greenland for the strait jacket roll. I suspect 1.5" is too much freeboard for me (the Zegul Greenland lists capacity at 220 pounds). Since 1.5 cm appears to be legit...

    resident orcas are starving

    A four-year study using drones has found orcas off the B.C. coast are far thinner and more malnourished than their nearby cousins. https://www.facebook.com/CTVVI/posts/1427848607268265 https://www.hakaimagazine.com/article-short/starving-killer-whales-are-losing-most-their-babies...
