    I think this video demonstrates Sk8r's method, and mentions the most important rule of lifting a boat, if it's an option, ask for help.

    As I haven't been anywhere interesting, I wasn't going to enter this year, but after a little prod, I'm entering this video, just so we can have a bit of controversy like they have at the Hollywood...

    Dirk,

    There was a lot of stuff in the original script for this video that got stripped away to, hopefully, make a watchable video. Stuff on leaning, sharp outside edge turns, carving and railing,...

    Another video, boat control and edge.

    I wonder how long I can keep doing videos like this without mentioning the paddle.

    Sounds like fun Bananaboat, have fun, I'll be watching out for the blogg.

    The restrictions on starting a thread are to prevent ending up with a dozen different threads about the same boat.

    Loch Quoich is a bit of a moonscape, water level is generally low and there's a grey stretch of rocks next to the water, puts a few people off. Only time I've been there was a long portage from Loch...

    Looks like one of those special trips, gutted I couldn't make it.

    One thing though...

    Test paddle a Silverbirch Firefly 14. Unless you need to keep the tandem option, or are a big lad wanting to hurl it at big water, the FF is just a far better boat for solo. Quicker, better tracking,...

    It's not the only boat like that, the wenonah P15 is wider than the P16. I liked the P15, it had character and charm.

    I don't think I've paddled either Penobscot but I'd hazard a guess that the...
