    Frej XS

    A build thread for a Bjorn Thomasson Frej XS. This project has been a long time in coming. I first bought plans for an Isfjord Mini in 2015 and picked up all my materials from Rod Tait at Orca Boats shortly thereafter. Life has a way of getting in the way and the materials sat for a long...

    The Capstone Project, Arctic Tern 14

    High school students are now required to do a project of some sort in their senior year in BC in order to graduate called Capstone. It's unfortunate because some kids just don't have any free time if they are competing for scholarships. No one needs extra work load when you're already...

    Dialing in paddle length

    Just a question on high angle paddle length. I see a lot of people have moved to shorter paddles over the years and I am hoping to draw on that experience. On flat water I notice the 5cm difference from 215 to 210 but in waves I don't. I suspect that's just me not being comfortable enough...

    Bar width for 4 J racks?

    What bar width are you folks using to fit 4 J racks and touring boats? Looking to do a wide bar set up for longer trips and not have to bring my trailer. I was planning on building something but I see there are some inexpensive aluminum bolt on options available with 66" wide bars. Not sure...
