  Short 5 degree bend
  Posted by: Glenn_MacGrady on Oct-23-12 3:38 PM (EST)

When I got my first sea kayak in 1996 I had Al Camp (now Foxworx) custom make me a 5 degree bent shaft out of his light foam blade technology. I think it's about 40" total length, but I'd have to go down into the apocalyptic rubble of my garage to actually measure it.

The 5 degree bend allows it to fit fairly flat behind the cockpit and also provide some mechanical advantage for the seated butt boat posture.

I never use it.
