Question What do you Paddle?

I was just curious what brand/model of Yaks everyone is paddling. I hope this thread lives on and can serve as a yak rollcall of sorts. I'd like to see what kind of following there is on this board. As new members come on board they could chime in.

Don't be shy, What are ya paddlin'?
Pictures welcome.

Let's see if we can build a fleet here.

I have a Wilderness System Cape Horn 15(mine) and a Necky Zoar Sport(Dad's) hanging on my garage wall as we speak.

Hopefully I'll get a chance to paddle mine this season.

What do you paddle?

Just picked up my first...a grass green Pungo that used to reside at Area 61 (thanks Pete!). I anticipate my first serious paddle to be the Spring Clave...practicing in the local lake just as soon as the ice clears.

Best regards,

-Doc

Nope..not another pungo. Technically its a recycled pungo from the A61, so take one out of the MYLU and into the Doc's column.

I am also a Pungo paddler.

If you see a Green pungo moving through the waters of Plymouth using a fish instead of a paddle That might be me.

What do you paddle?

Bad girls, REALLY bad girls!!


An Old Town canoe. Great for getting there but, regretably, poor in the fishing.

Yaks? Seem to be a rather gruesome cross between the more refined canoe and a tent (?). Can't understand why people wish to attach themselves to a watercraft that likes to roll over. yak, yak, yak...



:hehe:

mmm
