  1. Good Day Sue……I have a Current Designs Caribou kayak that has been sitting in my shed unused for the last several years. The ‘boo’ is in great shape. I had a brand spanking new hull placed on the kayak before hanging it up. The hull has no scratches whatsoever. The deck looks ugly. Why? The sun faded the red luster and the deck looks blotchy. Marine polish I believe will take care of that. The Caribou is 17’8” long & 21.75 wide. It is kevlar construction that is 44lbs. The kayak is in good condition. If interested I can send pics. Or if you want to chat and/or text I’ll release my phone number….I would like to get $1500 for this boat. I’d like to retrieve the $1200 I paid for the new hull. BTW, the hull had numerous scrapes and spider cracks when I decided to get the new hull. I had another Caribou kayak in my shed so I used that when I hung up my red Caribou……
  2. Joe, I wanted to purchase a Lendal Storm paddle badly. I hesitated back in 2020 because of the steep price. Lendal wanted $495 for the black bladed paddle. More for the checkered color paddles. In 2021 the price of the Storm increased to $555. “Holy-Hurt!!” That of course is a $60 increase. Last year whilst paddling I decided to not be ‘cheep’ and treat myself to the paddle I have wanted. I would bite the bullet cost wise. While on the Lendal website in January of the new year, much to my dismay this company raised the price of the Storm paddle to $610. Are you kidding me. Another $55 dollar increase. A $115 increase over 1.5yrs. What is Lendal’s justification for this? I have e-mailed them and received no answer. I would guess that the company would inform me because of the Covid-19 pandemic prices for material have increased and it is difficult to get materials. Ok. But if that is the case why did Werner paddles made of the same carbon material as Lendal paddles only increase the price of their paddles—Ikelos/Cyrprus by only $10 over the same time period? Anyhow, I wish that I could purchase the Storm paddle. I’ve been trying to contact Lendal for some time and determine if perhaps I can purchase a blemished paddle for a sale price amount. Any thoughts? Have you had success contacting Lendal?
  3. What is the lay-up? Weight? Foot pegs or foam for feet?
  4. A great read and enjoyed the wonderful pictures. Brought back pleasant memories. I was fortunate to do a five day hike in Iceland. Certainly a magical land. if anyone has the opportunity to visit the ‘Land-of-the-Trolls’ then certainly visit this magnificent country.
  5. I have one for sale. I can send pics. if you request. It is in good condition. A 210cm straight shaft/standard. I want $285 for it. Text me w/questions or I’ll send photo’s via phone. 518-796-6289….
  6. I will ‘second’ David M’s thoughts on the Astral Blue Jacket. Used to be called the Sea Wolf. Many pockets. Love the big front fold down pocket. Very comfortable. I’m going on my 4th year wearing the Blue Jacket and it is in really good condition. I paddle around 80 to 100 times per/yr. and this PFD is well worth it for many reasons.
  7. Hi...I have two kayaks that have been hanging in my shed for the last 10yrs.+. 1) Necky Arluk 1.9....18ft/22....50lbs....$400 2) CD Caribou...17’8”/21....44lbs...$1200. If interested call me to discuss: 518-796-6289 or respond to this thread....Paul
  8. I could never understand why my buddies and my wife could wear neoprene gloves and stay warm. I’d always ask them during a paddle: “are your hands/fingers cold?”. They always responded that their hands were ‘toasty’ while my fingers were cold. The guys and gals that suggested latex-type gloves were right. Those types of gloves work better than neoprene. However, recently I start off using pogies. After no more than 10 minutes on the water my digits are warm and toasty. I have to take the pogies off and the remainder of the paddle I don’t use any type of gloves as strange as that appears. If my hands get chilled I simply put the pogies back on.....hope this helps.
  9. Boy!...those NDK Explorers just keep going and going no matter what the weather is. Are you doing a snow cone roll? :-))
  10. G’day Kayaker276. I cannot help you with your inquiry. However, I could not help but notice from where you are corresponding. I live in Queensbury. Paddle often on the Hudson and Fish Creek into Saratoga Lake. Anyhow, if interested in paddling with us send me an email at: [email protected] or [email protected] We paddle in the Adirondacks at least once a week.
  11. Good Day...sorry for the late reply. Yes the Cyp. is still for sale....call/text me at: 518-796-6289 to chat/discuss the paddle. I am dropping the price from $280....or e-mail me at: [email protected] [email protected]

  14. Oops, I made a mistake. It should read 80-100 times per/yr. Please forgive me ;-))
  15. I hope your tread wasn’t entirely directed at me. I was responding to a post that did not want a police force or government interfering with travel. New York had the highest incident of covoid 19 cases with sickness and death. Our Governor did something about it. Our rate of infection is one of the lowest-if not the lowest-in the country. I paddle 80-100times per/wk. I do not want to see Florida/Georgia plates at the launch sites in NY. Those two states in particular did not follow CDC guidelines and are now paying the price for lack of action. I agree, that people need to use common sense. Wear a mask and practice social distancing. Go out for essential items only when necessary. Common sense. Yet, I don’t believe I’d be welcome to paddle in Massachusetts or Maine???
