This is where there will be a range of downloadable documents on various topics from
fitting a footrest, face-guard, paddle assembly and repairs to paddles and boats.
If there is anything you want put up here, which you think others would also like
to see, then give me a shout !
It’s written and available here, just email me and I will send you an update - if
It’s missing photos, which I am working on.
But need to remember to try and take them when I have sticky fingers.
For now, it’s just a description of a practical guide to assembling a paddle including
preparing the blade ends (Spigots) and the shaft.
Here is a link to a video showing how to remove a broken shaft from good blades.
As time goes on, I will add more, but if you have any ideas of what you would like
to see done, then let me know, or better still, come over and film me doing it !
The general principle here is, no matter what the shape of the blade, you measure
in line with the shaft. This means the end of the tape will not usually be aligned
with the furthest end part of the blade, but usually the midpoint (or there about's)
of the end.
To do this accurately, having two people will help - one to hold the end of the tape
at the 1st blade end, while the other person takes the tape real to the other end.
Both keeping the tape in line at each end of the shaft.
It’s worth the effort it just to be certain.
How We Fit A Faceguard
While this description shows another helmet type, it’s still applicable for any type.
