Shouldn't that thing have skis and a two stroke 700cc engine?

Nuts.

Nice Pintail. Gotta love VCP boats.

Mine's a '94 RM Skerray with the small ocean cockpit. Doesn't get as much use these days since I got into surfing and kiteboarding, but still love to take 'er out every once in awhile.

This place is a bad influence.

I picked up a Mad River Canoe Slipper Kevlar last night. It needs some TLC, but it was cheap, the right size and lightweight.

Anyone have any repair restoration advice?

A little grey on top.



Mold on the wood.



This is the worst, the decking has a little rot too.



Hopefully the interior will clean up well.



One small knick, only 2-4 mm. I think I can get the color to buff back a little.



These cracks I am not so sure about. They are not deep, but I would like to fill them anyway.



It came with a beautiful older Dagger Bent shaft paddle, too bad it is too short for me. I will post some photos later when I get it off my car.

I hope to use it for solo paddling, so I can keep a Pelican case in front of me with camera and lenses sealed out of harms way.

Did Mad River Canoe get bought out?

I thought I read that but I am not certain. They don't have any boats similar to this on their website anymore. I would have really like a new Wenonah solo in Kevlar, but this price was much more manageable and this one is not as attractive to a thief.

Nice pics guys. Sorry, I don't have any of mine to post, but here is a list of my navy.

Kayaks: 14.5 Wilderness Systems w/ rudder - Kobu-wifes boat
17' sea Kayak, Perception Captiva - My boat
Perception Swifty- Kobu-kids boat

Canoe: We-No-Nah Spirit, 17'+/- Kevlar, 46 pounds.

We are flat water kayakers although I would love to try some white water some day. I am planning a weekend canoe camping trip down the Conn. River this summer with Kobu-kid.

We love to paddle.

Here's a shot of a little boat I used to be attached to.



USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70)




Seaman Marbleless


I was stationed on her from '85-'91. Our aircraft saw action during the Iran-Iraq war with our F-14s escorting tankers through the straights of Hormuz.

Meanwhile, I was in the dungeon, keeping the neutrons banging the uranium, keeping her toolin' around at 30+ kts.

We just missed Desert Storm by a couple of months after we went into dry dock in Bremerton, WA.

if you google earth it:

41 deg 11' 05.62" N
111 deg 59' 28.65" W

(you see some whitewater there)

It's the Weber river as it passes through Riverdale, UT. Man made section put in last year. They did a great job on the hydrology with huge eddies on either side. I think that was flowing at about 2000 cfs.

A nuke powered kayak. Cool, but it must be a bitch to portage.

Thank you for your service to our country.

Too cool patch29! I used to own a kevlar Slipper! Perfect for me and my little dog, Comet. I wish I still had it but my knees don't do well bent that sharply for very long. You may need a whole new gunwale. Here's a link telling about who Mad River is now a part of: http://www.youcanpaddle.com/company.htm

Swede, you're way more hardcore than me! I still have my ol Dagger Animas and Centrifuge.

Looking good Marbleless.

Cool pics all! Thanks for sharing! Mark H.

Squinting, not from the sun... there's very big reptiles in these waters - Crocs.
