Love the rigging ! from Seattle Fabrics with cam buckle. The AquaBound blade curves onto the rear deck curve.
There's a thread at Kayakforums.com: paddle shaft strength.
The wrong method I sprang into tried again with a dowel Gflexed into a center joint on the broken AquaBound. Jumped in, turned around onto seat/pedals 2nd try.
With a higher grade aluminum shaft at AB's thickness AND a solid center joint, my safety spare concept moves forward BUT ! how to fabricate a solid center joint ? without Gflex. What percentage of success here is from the glue bound ?
Produced coordinated flowing paddlefloat snap rolls first time...its the water ! 75 degrees.
Useful list. Suggest a training exercise schedule ? As: start with ass over tea kettle reentry, somersault re entry, cowboy under Golden Gate in chop re entry...
then advance to Greenland No Hands Roll....
