    Fresh Venison

    Allegedly true, but let's not let facts get in the way of a good story, ok? I had this idea that I was going to rope a deer, put it in a stall, feed it up on corn for a couple of weeks, then kill it and eat it. The first step in this adventure was getting a deer. I figured that since they...

    Last Saturday, my sons and I were canoeing. I learned many things, sharing a plastayak with my 14 year old. 1) 14 year-olds do not immediately know left from right when approaching an eddy 2) "No, your other right" is probably not a good way of coaching them 3) Going through the eddy...

    Cincy Paddlefest 2010

    The Ohio River Way's 2010 Paddlefest is history. Approximately 2000 people on the water for an 8.2 mile paddle from a local amusement park to Sawyer Point, in downtown Cincinnati. My sons and I volunteered setting up the finish line, so no personal pictures. We also missed the launch, so...

    Texas Sheriff

    A young Texan grew up wanting to be a law man. He grew up big, 6' 2'', and strong as a longhorn and fast as a mustang. He could shoot a bottle cap tossed in the air at 40 paces. When he finally became of age he applied to where he had only dreamed of working: the Sheriffs Department. After...

    Boards Question

    Following up on Belly's question about nails, I have one about boards. Home Depot has gray-primed redwood in 1" x 8" x 10' or so. It looks like the boards are pieced together, but they seem to be knot-free. Are they really, or just puttied over? Are they suitable for gunwales and stringers...

    A tough old cowboy from south Texas counseled his grandson that if he wanted to live a long life, the secret was to sprinkle a pinch of gun powder on his oatmeal every morning. The grandson did this religiously to the age of 103 when he died. He left behind 14 children, 30 grandchildren, 45...

    Paddle Making Resources

    Just thought I'd start a thread for folks to share any paddle making resources - tips, plans, web sites, etc. It'll be a great help for folks like me who prefer to learn from other people's experiences. I'm good enough at making mistakes already :wink: It might be helpful to put paddle-type...

    Not My Build

    This is not my boat or build, so I don't suppose it is really bragging. I thought some of y'all were meticuluous, but this sea kayak is amazing. Anyway - From Russ Leidy's bb I like the tape on the cut pieces. Without it, and with my attention to detail, I'd put a chevron in the middle...

    Senior Moment.
