New cranked paddles
The 'Luger' what it would have looked like when new
I live and work in Orkney where I was born. Brought up on the Island of Shapinsay in a small cottage on the shores of Elwick bay I am happiest in or on the sea playing in all sorts of boats. kayaking is now a large part of my life I help run Kirkwall kayak Club, mainly enjoying sea kayaking but also playing Canoe Polo, run rivers, surf and plenty of socialising!
Instead I worked on the old Polo boats that kirkwall Kayak Club bought earlier in the year. This one is Carbon/ Fiber Glass and extremely light, but also this makes it a bit more vunerable to cracks.
I had to build a makeshift tent out of insulation and old bed sheets to contain the heat. Fiberglass needs warmth to set and it is currently -5 in the evenings!!
