Di thats what I was saying.... Rob is suggesting towards the bow.:

My day to correct Al....

Actually Rob said make sure they DON"T leave the yoke facing bow - so yer both right. Now we can all go back to thinking about paddling on the weekend. Speaking of which, any chance you're up on the Ottawa this weekend? Make sure to drop by the farm and say hi.,

Rolf, nicely said.... I had to give you something to do..... :wink:

It won't be this weekend but I will drop by at some point. Hey.... I didn't see you at the Single Blade? The two day W/W Instructor Conference was pretty cool. You should have been there.

I think your going to see some pretty cool ideas and methods come from it. I really like the new instruction method regarding solo w/w...... way simplfied.... the new 2x4 method..... sweet!!!

[quote="Battenkiller"] All your questions and patience have resulted in a boat I'm sure you'll enjoy and you get to have it your way. Too many folks just accept what they get and live with it. You set a fine example for us to force the makers to live up to their product literature and deliver the goods as described.

Well, ask my lawyer what a pain in the arse i am :D

Actually, I just like things clear and find when you do business in writing there is no misunderstanding and expectations are met.

I have never had a problem with this approach and it sets the tone for future good relationships.

But really, thanks to you guys...I am green as the grass and grateful for the time and advice - just disappointed no one asked me the most important question:

WHAT COLOUR! Well, since you asked :lol:

I got it fire engine red on top and sand on the bottom - yes sand people - not white. It will look like a 64 corvette except better!

Cheers!

Hi

Well, I posted this pic in another thread...but what the heck...

Image

I'm embarrassed to admit my biggest challenge right now is getting it on my Yukon truck (which you can kinda see in the background behind the red car).

It's red and tan (not white)...the dealer thought that was strange...I told them it is the same colour as my bathroom. They really thought that was strange :o Apparently they don't use Ralph lauren paints in their homes.

Anyway, I am very happy with the colour and the workmanship.

The gunnels, seats and trim is in ash. It's pretty spiffy looking.

Yes Forest Knight..it was a few bucks - but I hope this will last a long time so feel it is a good investment.

4 more sleeps then I'm off! OMG

:P

i really am living in the wrong country. I just googled nova craft canoe in kevlar no results. Nearest i got was a Mad River in kevlar £2000 GBP.

No wonder a couple of people i know are flying over to Canada to pick up a canoe and fly it home.

Lady Di. Lovely boat and a rather nice truck too.

Hi FK

Wow..2000 pounds ...I think that's over $4000 Canadian isn't it? You people must be rich...

My sister just returned from England this past January for a visit..she told me about the food (she didn't like it) but then she still likes to eat out of those dishes with the little dividers in them so that the peas don't invade the potates), then we heard grocery stores over there are only open to 6 pm ..how the hell do you manage...? and I got the impression all cars were pretty small or not all at - she says you can walk or take the metro almost anywhere.

I love my truck - it doesn't get much of a work-out these days because I take a train into the city or work remotely from home or some of their other offices. But it's great to take up north - wonderful to drive and nice and comfy...

Just have to get the damn canoe on top of it! Any ideas? The guy said take the little spongey things and put them on the roof rack first...then somehow slide the canoe on top..
:o

Help ..do I need to buy a little step ladder :oops:
