1. The Marketplace Forums can be useful for members who know one another well from forum discussions and offline communications and wish to post boatbuilding tools, drafting tools, molds and tooling, and other professional equipment for sale or trade. However, caution and good judgement should always be used. Especially when considering any business with anyone not already well known to you and trusted, due diligence must be used to confirm details and identity and be sure the transaction is safe before any money or property changes hands. Always use good judgement and perform due dilligence and follow these guidelines.

    Thank you for viewing this thread;

    A new design for a Carbon Fibre Kayak Paddle has been created and is currently for sale on eBay for $620. This paddle offers improved efficiency for each stroke as the blade out of the water remains closer to the surface, allowing for quicker and shorter strokes.

    For more information and where to purchase, this Paddle can be viewed online here:

    Thank You

    You simply hold the cross shaft in the center horizontal in your teeth and hands on each down shaft, rotating your head side to side with each stroke!

    In fast waters you can simply spin it in your teeth as a paddle wheel :)

    I thought he would be selling a hat with a holder in it like a rowlock for the center piece.

    Why do I get the feeling this is one of those things the seller has never produced but is sure it will work. I see the auction is only for pre orders and its not made yet.

    For $600 each, it sounds like market research, irrespective of product performance.

    That sounds about right. As is with most things these days marketing supersedes actual product development.
