    They look like old Volvo's; boxy but solid.

    thats what I was thinking, I was wanting a nice cheap wooden paddle for my first. Planning on getting a 150cm for the bow seat and a 160cm for me at the back, that way I thought I could see what length I prefer.

    hello, has anyone had dealing with this company before?

    I ordered the paddle from them 3 weeks ago!

    It arrived this morning, apparently the machince broke, but nno one could be bothered to tell me!

    As you can imagine all excited after this long wait, and.......

    They sent the Wrong Paddle!, not only the wrong paddle. but also the wrong length!

    As you can imagine I'm not best pleased.

    But on the plus side 3 weeks ago I ordered from ebay from here: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Indi-Winner-Ca...742.m153.l1262
    and it only took a couple of days to arrive, so not completly stuck, just no paddle for the person at the front.

    a rather annoyed

    I have, but its not at the stage I want to show off yet, I haven't even painted it yet and only just fitted in the seats. Maybe sunday, so I can get shots of it floating, not filling up with water

    Tomorrow morning I'm off to sudbury for another test, to make sure I've patched all the leak, be embarissing to fit the bulkheads and have them fill up with water.

    I just have a little problem, I've run out of resin again. Where am I putting it all?!

    Default Alittle further offtopic

    bad news I'm affraid, it still leaks! But some how it has got worse, any ideas how to fill a pin hole that you can't see?

    Would bathroom sealer do the job? or would rope soaked in resin be better?

    I'll write up properly with photo's later
