Dave, where is the Skinboat School you keep mentioning? I visited a place up around Anacortes Island in 1999 or 2000, where a guy had a school to build baidarkas. I got all interested and bought Dyson's book. Almost bought a baidarka at the Wilton Outdoor Center.
Sure, I'd love to try the paddle if I can clean all the protected mammals out of my neglected kayaks.
Since I've only been canoeing for the last several years, I really need an Aleut-ified single blade paddle. But I don't have the interest or skill to build one.
