    I'm interested in the first. Have you any better photos? I'm down near Cambridge. How much would it cost to deliver?
    Thanks.

    Thanks for the area. I guess small is good in some conditions. And for a paddle sailor these are mostly about providing assist in conditions less suitable for paddling, so small is not too much of a...

    What a lovely craft. I think there is a UK chapter of the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association. Try asking Blott (Nick) on this forum as I believe he is secretary or chairman. They have an interest in...

    Thanks for the photos, Mal. It would be similar, though the one I was offering worosei is a double, so imagine an elongated version of the triangular cockpit opening that you see there to allow two...

    Hi, glad to hear you've made it home ok.

    It also just occurred to me—given the distance you've travelled—that one of the manufacturers of canoes or kayaks might consider helping you out in return for publicity. The German canoeist Oskar...

    I'm very sorry to hear the above. Years ago I have come across both enormous kindness from some uniformed officials, and bureaucratic obstruction/venality from others. I'm really sorry to hear about...

    I have sometimes paddled my 16.5DR solo and it paddled fine. Might be a bit more of a handful in strong winds, but a bit of extra weight would no doubt help.
