Just looked at the online pictures. That's  a beautiful clean build.  Lovely lines, smoothly faired.  Congratulations.

RE: Wood Duck 12 Launched in Fort Bragg, CA

very nice.  I just glassed the interior of my wife's WD12... getting there!

I really liked the video of rolling ;)  Question, the spray skirt, or should I say half spray skirt, it looks like a Seals, but could not find it on their website, found one similar.  Where did you get it?  Model number?

RE: Wood Duck 12 Launched in Fort Bragg, CA

never mind, found it.  Thanks for the idea :)  Happy paddling!

Wow!

I'd have bet real money that that boat was unrollable. Thanks for posting that video. Welcome to the fleet.

Nice job. I have a WD 12 in the east Bay area. Have you taken it out in the ocean or harbor or just along the river so far?

TCdave, my 1st few paddles were near you at the Suisun slough. I haven't got out much but I have also tried Lafayette Reservoir, below Folsam Dam (I can't remember the nave- where CLC brings their boats to show near Nimbus parkway), last summer I had a lot of fun at Utica Reservoir- up Hwy 4 near Bear Valley. Some nearby places places I have thought of include Consumes (sp?) river preserve, Napa River, San Pablo Reservoir, and out near Franks Track in the delta.

RE: Wood Duck 12 Launched in Fort Bragg, CA

thanks Ralph for the new locations to try.  i have a sot plastic 12' kayak thati have taken a few places. i have paddled the suisun slough, pismo beach(this got me interested in the matunuck), san pablo reservoir, and the nimbus area when the clc boats traveling show was there. with the summer coming up i will be out learning more about paddling a kayak. i took a sea kayaking class at half moon bay.  that was very interesting.  i am thinking of taking more classes to expand my knowledge.  i am ready for the summer!!  if you hear of or try and enjoy an area, let me kknow.  i will do the same.

Ralph and TC Dave,

Regarding places to paddle in the Bay area.  Check out the Bay Area Sea Kayakers.  They have an exapansive membership that includes beginners through advanced paddlers all over the Bay and surrounding areas.  You should definitely check out their trip planner with logistics on different places to paddle around the Bay area.  They are also having a "homemade boat" padde in May for members who have built their own kayaks.

The Mendocino Coast is about 3-3/12 hours away from the Bay Area and offers fine paddling for your boats.  The Noyo, Albion, and Big Rivers are beautiful calm water estuaries.  Coastal paddling in the ocean is a bit more rugged and definitely requires proper preparation.  Feel free to give us a call if you are ever heading our way so that we can have a wooden kayak paddle party.

Maybe I should mention that with rentals in the last few years I (and my family) had a lot of fun paddling in Monteray Bay - SOT, and canoes on the Russian River. I just didn't have my WD-12 with me.

 Cate, I have seen the BASK web site but haven't spent much time on it. I have also seen the Liquid Fusion page and thought it might be fun to go there some-time.
