  8. Baffin Bay Skin on Frame Build

    I'm laminating two pieces of 3/4 X 7/8 stock to glue the bend into the gunwales. I had a momentary panic thinking about the route necessary to get the boat out of the basement but I think I'm okay.
  9. Kokatat Idol Drysuit

    Thanks for your replies, John and Jonathan. I have an expedition drysuit, but was curious as to how the two piece has performed after being on the market for a couple of years. Looks like I will stick with the drysuit I have.

  16. New Year's Day Paddle 2018

    It may sound like a cliche T-shirt slogan, but New Years Day kayaking could prove to be the best Monday morning of 2018, weather permitting.

  21. Kokatat Idol Drysuit

    Im pretty late to the part on this but I also am not a fan of the two piece style suit. My first dry suit was a kokatat Radius. Kelsey also had one as well. We owned them for about 8 months. After a month I found it was quite difficult to take on and off. Additionally the zippers leaked like crazy. I particularly did not like the way the suit sealed with that belt screw thingy. Kelsey stripped hers once. I called kokatat and expressed my concerns on the suit and they gave me 20% off the suit. I ended up selling both suits and buying two brand new kokatat Icon's. If you are interested in a 2 piece drysuit I would recommended a pair of kokatat gore-tex whirlpool bibs with a tunneled dry top.
  22. New Year's Day Paddle 2018

    Wish I could, sadly thats my holiday shift for the year.... Maybe next year!
  23. Anyone in need of some Pains Wessex Flares? I am in need of some flares and wondering if it would be more cost effective to get them from one the Marine Supplies as a group buy. I am currently looking at the red rocket parachute flares. They go for $48 a piece. If others are interested I will contact a few distributors to see if they will give us a discount on a group buy. https://www.lrse.com/collections/signaling/products/paines-wessex-buoysmoke-mk8
  24. Once again, I am looking for people to join me on a New Year's Day paddle along the North Shore somewhere to be decided based upon experience & desire of attendees and weather conditions. This will probably be a journey-style trip (as opposed to a surf or rock play event) somewhere in the 10+/- nautical mile range, and all who have the proper clothing (drysuits & insulation, gloves or poggies, hat or hood, etc.) are welcome to join. If you have not paddled in cold water before and are interested, please contact me privately to discuss details, otherwise post interest here and we will continue to discuss once weather forecast becomes available. You can read previous years trip reports to get an idea of what the day could be like: 2017 2016
