    Default Hello

    Hi there, i'm peter and have been canoeing seriously for about 4 years now, though I've always had to bemoan the fact that there was nowhere for canoeists (I even heard about this site on a kayaking one!)

    Anyhow Im a student up in nottingham at the moment, so inevitably have had to switch to the dark side of kayaking, there being few chances to canoe here.

    I like building my own gear so have carved two paddles (never try taking a 13ft plank in a clio it just doesnt work) and am about to start on a stripper as soon as I can get the research done!

    Nice sitet though, looks like most of my free time could be speant here if not on the water

    Welcome again. We seem to have had quite a few self builders showing up recently. We will have to have a "made my own canoe meet" so everyone can compare results

    Tut Tut!! you students are all the same.
    Leave the "strippers" alone and stick to the canoes

    Only kidding, welcome to the site, it seems we have quite a lot of talent in the "Self-build" end of things so you should fit in nicely.
