  2. G’day Terese....I do not want to put pressure on you regarding the purchase of a new paddle, but I have two paddles in my family room that have not been used in two years. Both are Werner carbon paddles. One is a Cyprus straight shaft at 210cm. Good condition. I would like at least $285. I am using a 205cm Cyprus that is why I am not using the 210cm. The other paddle is an Ikelos at 210 straight shaft. Excellent condition. Not even a scratch on the paddle. I use an Epic Carbon in lieu of that Ikelos. I would sell that paddle for $325. Let me know if interested or text/call me if you have questions at: 518-796-6289...Regards.
  3. G’day Sue....surely you meant 1:30PM...if not so....please bring coffee. Plenty....This is most interesting. I might even purchase the book.
  4. I’d like my post of the Lake George New Year’s Day paddle returned to Trips/Events. My wife has some Facebook friends who call themselves: The Adirondack Pirates. The paddle will be messaged through Facebook by her. On the other hand I am a member of the NSPN and would like my New Year’s day paddle posted here for all NSPN member to view. I received you e-mail pertaining to this event, but do not agree with the switch out of the Trips/Event section since once again I am a paying member of this group.
  5. G’day Paddlers.....the Adirondack Pirate group does an annual New Year’s day paddle. Paddlers from NSPA are welcome to join us on Lake George to ring in a new decade. We paddle around some of the Islands then time it right and paddle down to Million Dollar beach to watch the Polar Bear Plunge. After our paddle we go out and dine. Hotels/Motels are cheap in the offseason. Can secure a place right in the town of Lake George. Leggings are numerous up here now. *Let me know if interested in joining us and if members are interested in paddling up here then I will give the simple directions to the launch site. I realize that this trip could be 2.5-3.5hours away for most of you, but I’d like to give members of this organization a ‘heads-up’....Regards. Hoping all of you a happy and healthy Christmas and New Year......Paul ...aka...Capt’n Dangerous -
  6. Al, can’t go wrong with the Astral Blue Jacket—the old Sea Wolf. Can not say enough good things about this PFD....Please try one...
  7. Werner Ikelos Paddle. 210cm/ Straight Shaft/Standard. Excellent condition. $320. It will cost me $10 to ship and Paypal takes another $9+ for fees.... —I am looking to purchase an Epic Active Touring Paddle—All Carbon. Length can be 205-210. Red Shaft—earlier model. I do not like the new version of this paddle. Different(black shaft) circumference shaft, too much flex on the blade. I’m wondering if anyone out there has one of these older models(red shaft)for sale or know of someone who is willing to sell me this model paddle.
  8. Thanks so much for the intel regarding the Romany Surf and Explorer. I am 5’8” and 208lbs. I want a kayak that tracks well with minimum effort. I’ve been paddling a CD Caribou for the last 20years. It tracks like a train and is highly maneuverable. I just can’t pass up purchasing one of these NDK kayaks for a spectacular price. That is why I am inquiring. Thanks much for the feedback.
  9. G’day Paddlers....I have the opportunity to purchase either a Romany Surf or NDK Explorer for a fabulous price. —I have not test paddled either kayak. Most of my paddling is on the Hudson River for 6-10mile exercise paddles. — I do paddle large lakes in the Adirondacks. *Since many of you have experience with both kayaks I’m wondering what you would suggest regarding which kayak to purchase with the paddling that I do. Note: I do get at least two ocean paddles in during the season. I paddle at least 80+ times per/year. Your suggestions to me will be much appreciated and valuable....Thanks, and Regards,....Paul
  10. I’ll be interested in joining you and paddling on Lake George. I live here at Lake George. Need any; suggestions then feel free to ask..
  11. G’day and thanks much for the information regarding the NDK Explorer kayak. I really appreciate reading details regarding the kayak from those who have first hand experience....Regards,
  12. G’day. I am in the market for an Explorer kayak. During my searches I’ve noticed that most NDK Explorers are 2010-12 models. I’m wondering for those who have experience with these kayaks what, if any, differences are there with the older models compared to the recent models. I’ve read articles pertaining to poor quality control issues on some of the earlier Explorers, but as far as length/width, cockpit dimensions, etc....I’ve read nothing that changes this kayak significantly.....Thanks for your time if you can offer me some assistance with this matter....
  13. G’day Jim, I purchased a pair of NRS Mamba’s. I’m sure many other pogies brands are efficient ,but I noticed that the Mamba’s are 5mm thick while the others are 2.5–to 3mm thick. I used the NSR pogies on a late November paddle and once again on a New Year’s day paddle on Lake George and my hands/fingers were toasty.
  14. G’day....Paddled this area on several occasions. Great trips. Thanks for the information/write-up on this website. Really enjoyed your pics. The sunset pic.was magnificent. Brought back memories.
  15. G’day Dan.....I live in Queensbury NY and Lake George is 5minutes away from me. I’ve paddled many times on the Queens Lake. My wife and I may join you but Oct.12th is our 33rd weeding anniversary. I’ll have to run it by her if you know what I mean....I’ll mark this trip on my calendar. I love paddling into the Mother Bunch and among the many Islands there....I’ll stay in touch.
