 Post subject: Paddle length, sail rig
PostPosted: Wed Jul 19, 2006 12:12 pm 
We are using much longer paddles, Nimbus Kiska in 245cm. I tried a shorter paddle (wooden Grey Owl), but found it difficult to maintain a low angle stroke. I also got water in the boat with a shorter paddle. But if you are taller with longer arms a shorter paddle should be good.

The sail rig is old, made by folding boat manufacturer Hart in Munich (doesn't exist anymore). http://faltbootbasteln.de/fbb-hart_boot ... mit_segeln (smaller sail also fits on kayak) I will take only the jib on overnight trips I think.

Please post some photos of the sail rig in use. Someday I may work up the nerve to try sailing my boat.

A little further down the page I noticed an inflatable boat that resembled one of Tom Yost's experimentals - Schlauchboot "SEETEUFEL". Sea Devil? Still, a pretty cool looking boat.

Fair winds to you,

Chris
