bespoke East and West Greenland paddles UK paddle canoe custom

paddle repair

 

 

A Greenland paddle is most definitely not a white water paddle.

 

I tried, I failed, I wrecked lucky number 13. I made a right bollocks of it!

 

Then fixed it, scarfed a new piece in, didn't quite get the grain to line up as it was quite difficult to clamp as the glue made the 2 pieces slide apart. It's not a perfect result visually, but it's a hell of a lot better than it was, and I get to keep using one of my favourite paddles.

 

The moral of this story is, if you break your paddle doing something daft,

I can probably fix it . . .
