    Did you ever decide between the Northwind Solo and the Northstar Phoenix? I'm trying to make the same decision.

    Thanks!

    Hi Alwayswet
    TVCrider already covered the review of the LV more thoroughly than I could have as I’m more the MV size. Shall I look into shipping an in-stock Sunbeam MK-II Scorpio LV skeg to you? I’m wrapping up an MV to go to Paraguay (of all places) today so while the shipping Research engines are warm ........

    See you on the water,

      Marshall, thanks for your followup. Apologies if I didn't get this until now; still learning the navigation of this message board. Haven't brought myself to pull the trigger on the Scorpio LV just yet. Feels like a little too much boat for 90% of what I'd use it for. But I appreciate the follow-through. Most of the kayak shipments I've priced out are through KAS and seem wildly unpredictable/untimely; do you have an alternate method if I can't find what I need locally?

    Hi Doggy,

    Are you looking for a smaller volume or shorter kayak in NY?

  • Paddling at Martin Dies Jr. State Park, TX. Lots of opportunity for paddling on the Neches River, protected paddling trails and the open water of the lake.

    Solo Canoe Spreadsheet?

    Hi Charlie,
    Never met, but read so many of your solo canoe threads/responses I feel like I have. I'm writing to ask for a copy of your solo canoe spreadsheet, which I have seen you offer on a few threads.

    Today I brought home a 1986 Mad River kevlar solo that must be the Pearl in very good used condition - just needs a bath. The wood trim is decent with a bench seat has been hung from the rails but also included the original fiberglass saddle. I’m interested to learn anything more about the hull history/design, including its advertised specs and its marketing position relative to the [lady]Slipper, Traveler, and any other other solo flatwater boats they may have offered during that time. I think it is a Jim Henry design, and looks like it will be fairly “hot.”
    Thanks,
    Dan aka Kona

    Hello Ali
    BelHaven has been long closed, to the best of my knowledge.
    You're rather equidistant from me at
    The River Connection in Hyde Park, NY where I have my own harbor/boathouse on the Hudson River
    Annapolis Canoe and Kayak in Annapolis, MD
    Potomac Paddlesports, Potomac, MD

    Campmor and Ramsey Outdoors are in Mahwah and Ramsey NJ but are on Rt.17 no where near water.

    If there's something in the P&H, Venture, Lincoln or Impex lines of touring/sea kayaks that might be of interest let me know. Delivery options do exist.

    See you on the water,
    Marshall

    I got a call Saturday from a localnpaddler wanting to move up from her composite Current Designs Kestrel. Would that be of interest? If so I’ll put you two in touch with each other.

  • Enjoying canoeing for the last 25 years and sea kayaking the last two as well. Whitewater to swamps and oceans and lakes. I love virtually all types of waters with the right craft. Spend most of my time paddling all over SC and frequent trips to Florida.
