  Ozark rendezvous garage sale
  Posted by: pgeorg on Mar-30-13 9:05 AM (EST)

I have gone bonkers during the winter buying boats and now I need to sell a few. I have a Royelex Argosy and an old Blue Hole Sunburst also in Royalex. The Argosy is in good shape, the blue hole is usable.

If you have any interest shoot me an email.

I haven't put up any ads; probably won't until weather improves dramatically.I do have several canoes I am considering selling in the coming year.

Bell Wildfire: kevlar, wood trim, very nice condition
Bell Flashfire: kevlar, wood trim, near new condition
Mohawk Solo 13: royalex, like new condition
Mohawk Probe 12: royalex, fully outfitted for whitewater, like new condition
Mad River Flashback: royalex, fully outfitted for whitewater, slalom canoe in very nice condition for age.
Whitesell Piranha: royalex, fully outfitted for whitewater, very nice condition, difficult to find in any condition.
Prices negotiable, but this is NOT a yard sale........
Photos readily available.

Also available: A couple of nice condition Lotus pfds, a Stohlquist rescue vest, and several canoe paddles.

Nothing will be brought to the Rendezvous, unless I receive email noting interest in particular item.


  Hmmmmm, Mohawk Solo 13, eh?
  Posted by: Yanoer on Apr-01-13 1:42 PM (EST)
I've been looking for one, but probably at a more used price.
  Mohawk 13
  Posted by: on Apr-12-13 11:47 PM (EST)
Keep looking; this one is as stated, like new.

Good luck.

It's a 2 person tent, but I've used it as a solo for a few years. If you put 2 people in it, they should be a "Skinny two" (LOL)!

  I would probably sell my mohawk odyssey
  Posted by: yakjak on Apr-12-13 9:58 PM (EST)
and I would probably regret doing so...
  DO NOT....
  Posted by: wildernesswebb on Apr-12-13 10:45 PM (EST)
...tempt me Jack, now's not a good time to buy a boat!
  Lol Terry
  Posted by: yakjak on Apr-13-13 5:07 AM (EST)
I thought after buying the starfire you would be done.... Ill save it for you... Im bringing it to paddle (one last time?) lol .... you can play in it if you like...
  Can't Bring Myself to Paddle....
  Posted by: wildernesswebb on Apr-13-13 5:24 AM (EST)
....the Starfire on the North Fork or in really boney conditions again. That severe scraping I had last Fall that Tom witnessed REALLY hurt. I'll be paddling the old Mistral. I'd love to try out your boat since I've been looking at it for years!
  Sounds like advice
  Posted by: pgeorg on Apr-13-13 5:48 AM (EST)
to me. Never having been on the North Fork I was wondering if we would find it boney. Sounds like we might. I'm thinking I should bring an old Royalex beater, eh?

  River levels
  Posted by: on Apr-13-13 9:39 AM (EST)
Lots of river in Missouri are looking really good right now, due to recent rains. More rain is in the forecast for the coming week. We'll need some more before the end of April for the rivers to be at the level they are right now. I think the chances we will get more is good.

Probably wouldn't be a good idea to buy a new Placid boat, and bring to the North Fork for "break in".


  I used my Dragon Fly on the Current
  Posted by: kayamedic on Apr-13-13 10:16 AM (EST)
but never having paddled the North it ledgier and bonier?
  North Fork vs Current
  Posted by: on Apr-13-13 9:25 PM (EST)
In my opinion, yes, the North Fork is a little bit ledgier, and boney than the Current.
Not much, but there is some difference.
Spring river is most definitely ledgier then both.

  Good to know..
  Posted by: osprey on Apr-20-13 5:51 PM (EST)
on the water levels. Heard some reports today that some of the rivers in the midwest were way up. Must be to the north and east of MO.

From 4/13 to 4/17 the Current above Akers Ferry was running around 2 feet. That's not unusual at all.
On 4/18 it rose to 14 feet. That's fairly unusual.
Today is is slightly below 4 feet, and dropping;
4 feet would be fun.

The Jacks Fork at Mountain View peaked at slightly above 14 feet on the 18th. It is now below 4 feet. A good example of why we always say if heavy rains are expected on the Jacks; you might want to make your camp up on the side of a big hill........instead of a gravel bar 2 feet above river level at bed time. :^).
I wouldn't be surpised to hear it flooded some of the camp at Alley Springs.

The North Fork near Tecumseh peaked at nearly 20,000 cubic feet per second on the 18th. It started rapidly dropping on the 19th.

More rain is in the forecast for coming week.
Lots of rivers in cental & southern Missouri are experiencing the same sort of action lately.


  Terry is wise
  Posted by: Boyscout on Apr-13-13 10:26 PM (EST)
On two points. North fork will make you cringe depending on water levels and the canoe choice. And he already added a canoe to his collection. Probably should hold off adding more to the fleet.
I am thinking that the freedom solo may make the trip. Much like Terry I'm not sure I want to hear lots of scraping on the Dagger Reflections hull
  I have a current designs kayak

  Bending Branches Viper Paddle
  Posted by: wildernesswebb on Apr-23-13 2:10 PM (EST)
At 48" it's too short since I paddle kneeling only now. It was a spare that was virtually unused. Almost without blemish. They cost $175 retail currently, will sell for $75
  48 inch paddle ...................
  Posted by: on Apr-23-13 6:08 PM (EST)
You may have to go to a Rendezvous for elves or dwarves to find someone that paddle fits.

  Hey Terry ....
  Posted by: vic on Apr-23-13 7:08 PM (EST)
better call Randy Newman and ask him where the "Short People" hang out.
  Posted by: Boyscout on Apr-24-13 2:32 AM (EST)
I already have a viper at 48. Otherwise I would be very tempted. 48-50 seems to be my perfect range.
  all he has to do is hold onto it
  Posted by: kayamedic on Apr-23-13 7:22 PM (EST)
..after 65 he will get shorter
  Posted by: wildernesswebb on Apr-24-13 9:55 AM (EST)
Heheheh, unfortunately, I've already lost an inch!
  It's a Double Bent Shaft

Mick is the one that got me addicted to shorter paddles. I had this as a "Backup" to my older one. When I paddled the Mohawk Solo 14, the Sawyer Autumn Mist and the Monarch it was perfect. My Zavs and the Mitchell are only 50" paddles. Also good for a sitting paddler in something like a Wenonah Vagabond. I swear, it's a great paddle for a sitting paddler in a solo boat. Who says "Bigger is better" (LOL)!

  If you still have it and can bring it
  Posted by: pblanc on Apr-24-13 12:46 PM (EST)
I would like to take a look at it.
  I Do, and I Will
  Posted by: wildernesswebb on Apr-24-13 12:49 PM (EST)
See you next Wednesday!
  Terry, I thought I told you.............
  Posted by: on Apr-24-13 1:39 PM (EST)
Don't leave paddles laying in the sun; they shrink & warp into all kinds of shapes.

Epiphany: Cut the blade off that paddle, and you could use it for an "otter whacker" You know how vicious those river otters can be.

Or your could use it to whack "river dorks" who threaten to turn your canoe over, for their drunken enjoyment. Will never forget the dork that grabbed Brian's canoe on the Current river. Brian drew his paddle back & stated most emphatically, "Let go of my canoe"! Evidently the "river dork" felt Brian was serious, and did just that. Wise decision on part of river dork. :^) Made my day!

  Posted by: wildernesswebb on Apr-24-13 2:27 PM (EST)
Wish I could have seen Brian vs River Dork (LOL)!
  But Bob
  Posted by: Boyscout on Apr-24-13 6:43 PM (EST)
If you leave a paddler out in the sun long enough dont they get a little warped to. or do you think a few are already a bit out of whack to start?
  Even worse
  Posted by: vic on Apr-24-13 11:39 PM (EST)
A paddler left out in the snow will get warped even worse. Just ask me Ginny, or Doug
  Two Blue Barrels
  Posted by: loon on Apr-25-13 11:04 AM (EST)
I have two barrels for sale.. $40.00 each. These are perfect for down river camping... Please let me know if your interested prior to the Rendezvous. I don't' really want to bring them along unless there not coming back home with me. :-)

I also have a few other items I'll bring but don't have the time to list them.

  In your case
  Posted by: Boyscout on Apr-25-13 10:49 PM (EST)
With the exception of Ginny. Long term snow exposure only amplifies natural traits. At least for you and Doug.
  anyone need extra paddles
  Posted by: kayamedic on Apr-25-13 5:45 PM (EST)
I am bringing three wood beaters. All are OK, need varnish . Two bents and a straight. Nothings broken.
  Mitchell Leader Paddle 50"
  Posted by: wildernesswebb on Apr-25-13 8:27 PM (EST)
Got it last summer. Too pretty to use, it just sits in my canoe rack. They're almost $200 retail. I'll take $80 for my gently used one.
  Posted by: pblanc on Apr-25-13 8:58 PM (EST)
a fifty inch paddle might work better for me than a forty eight. Bring it along and I will almost certainly buy either it or your Viper.
  Posted by: wildernesswebb on Apr-25-13 11:54 PM (EST)
See you next week!
  Mitchel Paddle
  Posted by: loon on Apr-26-13 2:18 PM (EST)
Terry, I may be interested if Pete isn't.
  and I might be interested though third
  Posted by: kayamedic on Apr-26-13 2:36 PM (EST)
in line..however the budget man will be with me. AKA "ANOTHER PADDLE?"
  Well, Looks Like It's Sold...
  Posted by: wildernesswebb on Apr-26-13 10:37 PM (EST) way or another (LOL)! See you'all next week on Wednesday!
  Choppy Cutty Slicy Things Anyone?
  Posted by: osprey on Apr-27-13 6:38 PM (EST)
Hey Vous campers. Nothing is more fun than having quality edged tools right? One of these is sure to please.

Becker BK-9 Combat Bowie (Have the biggest knife on the sandbar) It is actually a very useful camp knife, and ultra heavy duty.

Helle Fjelkniven (Have the sharpest knife on the sandbar. Its the famous Helle triple laminated stainless that is capable of being scary sharp) Its a beautiful Norway made knife that feels just right in the hand.

Wetterlings small hunters hatchet (Show it to the Gransfors-bruks axe snobs and tell 'em what you paid for it!) A handy little hatchett made in Sweden with old world pride.

These are all in very good condition and all retail for 80-100 dollars.

Any can be yours for 40 dollars.
