Re: New outfitting in an existing boat

The short answer is no,not really. If you found a Z.one with better outfitting you could remove it and fit it in your boat but this wouldn't make sense to do unless you find a Z.one where the shell is wrecked but the outfitting is still okay. Aftermarket outfitting isn't really a thing except for ba...

Re: Bent Shaft Blades

Mostly explained above, it's so they can adjust the length and feather by trimming two identical crank shaft halves to the desired length without having to make a mould for each different length and feather (which would cost a lot). The join is made up of a spigot (like a tube glued into both halves...

Re: How would you fix this paddle blade?

Thanks for your advice, I'll give it a go and see what happens. I would rather replace the whole blade but with VE not making paddles any more I think I'll be lucky to find a right blade to use!

How would you fix this paddle blade?

I'm after some suggestions for fixing this paddle, my plan at the moment is to clean the inside of the crack as much as possible, removing any loose bits of glass, then fill the crack with epoxy thickened with chopped up bits of glass mat. I'll see how strong it seems once that is done and maybe epo...

Wanted: Broken paddles

Hi everyone,

I'm after broken paddles that you don't have a need for anymore so that I can replace blades/shafts and make myself a useable set. Ideally VEs, Werners or similar that have either a broken shaft or broken blade.

Let me know what you've got!

Re: Carbon/Kevlar vs Carbon shafts

Not all that is black is carbon. As far as I can tell most Werner whitewater shafts are fibreglass, not carbon. I'm fairly certain that the Werner Paddles I have (Powerhouses) have a carbon shaft, it was certainly sold as such and you can see the carbon weave. I have used Werner fibreglass shafts b...

Carbon/Kevlar vs Carbon shafts

Looking at replacement paddle shafts and have seen some in Carbon/Kevlar and others in just carbon.

Can anyone tell me what the difference is between the two materials? Will one be stiffer/lighter/stronger?

Re: Do you need a backband?

what is its real purpose? For a creeker I would say that it is important as if you have a large impact going backwards the backband will break a lot easier than the cockpit rim of the boat A back-band is definitely more comfortable though, especially when you're feeling lazy and want to slouch.

Re: Do you need a backband?

I think a lot of the evidence you are giving of boats that don't need backbands are boats that have bucket seats or at least a seat with a high back - including yours. To me a bucket seat does the job of a backband, just a bit lower down. What kind of seat does Bren use? I don't think there are bett...
