Hi Archiii,

Quote:
I no longer really have space to build, so I've been hoping to organize some people to build some together at my new paddling club.
Thanks for your comments ... A group build is a great way to share resources and knowledge. Having someone in your
club already experienced with the building techniques will make the process a bit easier. What kayak design are you planning to build ?

Here's a 2-part video by the Yonkers paddling and rowing club building a small "fleet" of Nikumi's.

Good luck with the project

Tom

Cool videos.

Ive only met jack very briefly in passing, but Ive paddled one of the baidarkas he built which now belongs to a friend of mine (tried it at the hudson greenland fest last year). A whole bunch of people I used to guide with are members over there at the YPRC and some have mentioned their willingness to help if I get stuck building a SOF. Its probably not going to happen until next year at least, though (Im doing too much traveling right now).

The model Id prefer to build is the sea rider. Id love to build a folder I could take overseas with me when Im working abroad like I am now, but I can visualize all the steps involved with the wood frames and I don't feel as comfortable with the metal/hdpe process.

Anyone ever kayak the NM part of the San Juan river, the Navajo Dam to 4 Corners monument?

Looking for a good beginner touring trip. It's supposed to be 98 miles and pretty tame.

Here's a few pics from riding / paddling yesterday.

Falco folding kayak on board...


24 lbs / 5 minute assembly ... Assembly starts once the kayak is unstrapped from the bike.








Same inlet in today's much better morning light.

Damn you Tom, now I'm gonna have to built Falco when you release all the details. I've been using my Sonnet 16 for maybe 4 years now- it travels nicely on my Strom & even better in my sidecar rig. Last year I acquired a 4 pc carbon Greenland paddle,so it's a very compact package.

People I paddle with usually laugh at me when I start putting my Sonnet together & bring it to the water. Comments like "I can loan you a boat so you can keep up" are normal. At the end of the paddle, they are usually asking me were they can get one as I tend to finish at the front of the pack. No names, but one time, some of these "other paddlers" owned or were president / CEO types of the kayak manufactures, paddling their latest carbon wonder boats.

I have organized group kayak builds if anybody wants to bounce some ideas around.

I printed out one of Tom's 13 foot designs a couple years ago, but so far, that's all I've done. I need a place to build it. I'm thinking the middle of the back yard may work this summer. The garage would work, but it seems I don't own it any longer.

Since there isn't a Stand Up Paddleboard thread and I do have a couple of kayaks back home in Hawaii I thought maybe this might be the spot.
This past saturday I paddled the Rhine River from Oberwessel to Saint Goar past the Lorelei (nasty spot in the river with a Siren Legend of luring
ships to the rocks, still get a barge or two every year). I've never worn a PFD on a SUP before but thought it might be prudent on this ride,
the water was to say the least interesting with all sorts of oddball currents and big boils probably has something to do with the river going from
400+ meters wide upstream to 200ish meters wide in the area where I was.....



There was a cool little beach on the south side at about the 2/3 point and I pulled in to relax for a bit.



I think I'll take open ocean swells any day over that river run.

Edited to minimize Texan Word Wrap. Sorry....

I got this Seaward Legend about three months ago. It fits me like a glove. I did the lakes portion of the Allagash Wilderness Waterway in it in May.


I also have this Perception Eclipse, but it is too big for my liking, I'm trying to sell it to get a Points 65 Whisky 16.

I thought that backdrop looked familiar. Do you paddle there often? I live 10 minutes from there in Palm Harbor and paddle there 4-5 times a week.
