    Midcoast Greetings

    Greetings WCP, Long time no post, but still consumed with paddling. I actually car topped a SOF to Seattle Aug 2016, and paddled in the Sound, launched at Dash Point. My back was blew out unfortunately. I still haunt the fresh water, ran into some fellow paddlers on a solo trip in the A.I...

    West Greenland Kayak S&G Kits

    Whoa.. that's not even really "a kit" then.. nevermind :| A buddy butcher paper traced another buddies betsie out to full size plans and built it. It's nice. You could do the same thing against a SOF of greenland lines. Just an optional thought

    Some news about AstoriaDave

    Tent Take Down - Fold & Roll, or Cram? Which is Better?

    for the hubbahubba I like fold/roll. Setup and takedown are very fast, nothing every snags.. I used to stuff/cram. But I found in inclement weather I could set up easier under a tarp if everything was packed neatly. I stuff my tarp rain fly.

    Who would be interested in this type of kayak?

    Nope, you are building an electric boat.. I'm not saying it won't be cool :cool .. but it is not a kayak...kayaks are propelled by an integrated propulsion/navigation system that farts and burps.. :P I probably wouldn't buy one.

    If you could paddle any one place, where would it be?

    If I could just figure out how to talk a bunch of folks into giving me their money so I could go do it. That's what I admire most about expeditioners..their fund raising prowess.

    If you could paddle any one place, where would it be?

    No camping for me, I would want a mother ship for this outing. Panama had the biggest snakes and spiders I ever saw. Not to mention mean monkeys, crocodiles, giant crabs... iguana. It was fun to explore the jungle, I just wouldn't want to sleep there. I did know a group who camped on motor...

    can you do the 'roll'?

    Alana .. I recommend you start doing the whole motion of the forward finishing sweep roll. You probably are doing the roll already. :cool I would say you have no muscle memory because the motion is nothing we would do in real life but forward finish roll a qajaq. You need to find the motion...
