Post Open Boats
on: June 1, 2019, 19:19

Good evening all.

I have decided that I would like to try an open boat, and would like to eventually get my own for trips on flat water such as the Friday night paddles at Hoe Mill Lock.

I'm thinking of a 14 ft boat which would appear to let me solo paddle and occasionally (very occasionally) take a passenger. Something like a Hou 14, Mad River 14TT or Enigma Nimrod 14.

As I've never paddled a canoe before, I was hoping that some of you may be kind enough to bring your open boats to the next Hoe Mill paddle so that I could have a try and see if I like it?

Kevin/Barry - A crash course in open boat paddling would also be very much appreciated if possible?

Thank you all, and see you at the pool on Monday.
