Thanks, that makes a lot of sense. The phenolic tip is another of your wise ideas that I'd like to borrow next time I make a paddle. I think that the double paddle is less likely to run its tip...

I have a ~1950 copy of the Oxford Universal Dictionary that I bought from a used book store for 31 cents back in 2006 or so, and I found nefandous in there. It seems to me to be sadly underutilized...

Four decimal places is a high level of precision. It sounds like the glass would be a negligible addition to the overall weight, and I could offset it by partially hollowing the shaft with a router...

People ask me that question too. Since I don't own a dog I have to rely on my nefandous alter ego, who is of course always with me, and so far we have been fine.

The fiberglass looks great on there. I hope the sanding will go smoothly. What is the paddle weight difference between fiberglass and no fiberglass? I'd like to try it on my next paddle, but mine...

I hadn't thought about the convenience of swimming from the board, but it makes a lot of sense. Thanks for posting, it's good to know that you liked them when you tried them.

I've been wondering how the paddles were coming and if you'd had any time to work on them during the holidays. That one looks very nice, and it looks like you got the last of the baseboard completed...

For me wood seems like the obvious choice for a few reasons. It's plentiful and local and cleanish, and especially cleanish with a new stove which meets EPA 2020 regulations. I've been burning...

Speaking as a member of my family I can affirm that we are indeed related to orangutans, some of us more closely than others.

I wouldn't know myself but according to the DEC website mink are part of the weasel family, so perhaps it's the same difference either way.

Stripperguy, I'm also excited by the possibilities of flexibility, but I don't know how well it will work in practice. I'm sorry you haven't been able to find the best way to make freedom work for...

It helps if your pack is always packed, so you can grab it and go at moment's notice. And yes, it also helps if you spend free time pouring over maps and reading trip reports in advance, as you plan...

Stripperguy, a cubby sounds like an interesting idea. Mostly I have seen tiedown points or straps towards the bow and stern in pictures. I was also thinking about one of those blue barrels that...

I think that carrying stuff should be okay, as it'll be lower than most of me, so if I can keep from tipping over by myself the extra weight lower down should be fairly insignificant from a balance...

Thank you all for the insights.

DSettahr, I will indeed carry or wear a PFD depending on conditions. I would think that especially in rough water a PFD would be more important on a paddle board...
