    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!)

    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...
