Lumpy Paddles/Bill Bremer

Has anyone talked to Bill Bremer lately? Website is closed and his phone number is disconnected… He makes great paddles and I would hate to think something was wrong.

That doesn’t sound good when both are down.

Yes, it’s troubling that the site is shut down. Was working a couple of weeks ago. Not only does he make beautiful paddles, he’s a very terrific and knowledgeable guy. I sure treasure my Lumpy.

Hoping he just decided to take a respite from carving sticks to go on a paddling adventure with his wife.

UH OH!
BILL!! If you’re reading this I want one more paddle before you retire! Call me!

I, too, have been unable to reach Bill who always responded to my emails (he affectionately called them “naggy notes”). I am sad. He is a great guy, a brilliant paddle maker, and an endless font of kayak knowledge. My Lumpy has changed my paddling life. It has gotten five coats of tung oil for its winter’s nap, and is propped in the corner of the bedroom where I can gaze on it, and my wife can grumble about it.

Bill, if you read this, I hope all is well. Let me know if I can help in any way. I mean it!

And if you call and my phone doesn’t say “Bill Bremer” I’m not going to answer… I hate sales calls. Leave a message. I’ll call you right back.
