What do you think?
Hi Guy, I was referring to this post:

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f161...ml#post1201521

I know nothing about Malone racks. What I read looks good. Here is some discussion comparing Malone and Thule racks:

Malone J-Cradles Vs. Thule Hull-a-Port - Canoeing / Kayaking

Maybe someone else can chime in that has experience with Malone. Good luck.

Thanks! That is a fine looking boat. Was told they plan to start shipping those out within the week.

Kayak length

If I were looking at single touring kayaks, what impact does length have on the experience? Keep in mind that I would generally be day tripping, so no massive need to carry gear - more like a day pack, camera bag - I do want to be able to take pictures while boating. I love lakes, rivers, definitely ocean but more bays, inlets, harbors than surfing or venturing into big seas, and not looking for a rudder. I like something that is efficient paddling and cruises easily, value that more than stability. So, having said all that, would difference would, say, a 12 foot boat have over a 14?

Kayak - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Here are a couple shots from the Coshocton, OH to Marietta trip. Gliding through the fog on Morning 4 with 85 miles behind us and just 25 to go. The fellow with the white beard is 75 years young. This was his 5th trip down the Muskingum; We call him "Chief Musky". The man can paddle.

For some reason, I'm the only one with a halo above my head, hummmm.

The halo is over the opposite of you. If the opposite is an angle, hmmm.

As mentioned in post 440. This is the Hulavator as the kayak is placed on it.

With my kayak I placed the frames far enough apart, to provide greater support while traveling, that it takes 2 people to put the kayak up. That is not a function of the weight but rather just the fact that my arms are not long enough to reach both frames at the same time.

I just really enjoy lookin at your craftsmanship.
too bad youre suffering from short arm syndrome. something to do with paddling or using a table saw? lol
also your sig line indicates 2004 excursion, but that looks like a burb in the pic,looks just like mine!

you guys should look a few posts back at my "rear loader". it really works and can be easily assembled in a few hours.It takes longer to "get" the parts than to construct!

Lodi Nile

This post is a bit late, since it was mid-Sept when I visited DOORGUNNER. We had couple paddles on Lake Natoma, a world-class training ground for top US kayakers and rowers--I had no idea. Up till then, I thought all the cool people were on the Charles River in Boston. Whoa!

Here's the Lodi Nile, a fun paddle with the local kayak shop. I'm glad the sign didn't include kayaking...

For those of you who don't know Tim, he is deep into building lighter, faster boats. Here he is experimenting with new composite materials for yet another kayak that will leave me in his wake...that's possibly also got something to do with the fact that he actually works out.
