Try out kayaks - esp LL Night Star

Submitted by johntarr@icloud.com on Thu, 08/22/2019 - 10:54

I think this is a long shot, but is there anyone near the Eastern Shore of Maryland, or in the greater DC area with a Laughing Loon Night Star who would be willing to let me try it out? I my looks perfect on paper, but I’d like to know before dropping that kind of money and time on it. 

Best Inflatable multipurpose Kayak

Submitted by kayakclimber on Tue, 08/13/2019 - 07:50

Hi!

I’m looking for a tandem inflatable kayak for me and my girlfriend. I would need it to be tough (sometimes my 15 kg dog will come with us) and as multifunctional as possible. 

I’ve seen the advanced elements convertible elite

Hello, my name is Randy, and I live in La Mesa, California. I got plans for the Micro Sport Bootlegger and hope to have her on the water - here at the Watson Lake in Prescott, Arizona - someday.

This is what I have now, a Pamlico tandem...

Perimeter deck lines

Submitted by Rich Greenberg on Tue, 07/30/2019 - 15:26

Hi, I am new to this forum.  My wife and I have a couple of skin on frame kayaks.  They are beautiful and are built in a very traditional manner with no perimeter lines. As we venture out into Puget Sound more, I think I'd like to install perimeter lines.

Board length calculation confusion

Submitted by dkavran on Fri, 07/19/2019 - 14:11

Hi All,

i am ready to begin ripping strips for my petrel play and am confused with the materials calculator provided on this site.  Under the field where it had you enter the strip width I am not sure what value to use.  Nick says the strip width is also the width of the board, so would I enter 1.5 given I am starting with 2x10 stock, or do I enter .75 given that will be the width that I will rip the strips down to?

any help would be greatly appreciated.

 Thanks!
