From central New York, I paddle a Necky Chatham 16, Impex Assateague and West Greenland SOF that I built in October 2016. Use GP’s exclusively since 2013. When the waters around here freeze I downhill ski 3 days a week, home hill is Snow Ridge Ski Resort in Turin, NY. Comfortable in waves 3-4’ which I find locally on Oneida Lake and Lake Ontario. Paddle over 1000 miles a year, averaging a little better than 14.5 miles every outing. Retired in 2014.
