Paddling Gear You Can Make For The Do-It-Yourself And Poverty-Strricken Paddler [NOOK Book]

Overview

Kayaking is NOT a cheap sport. Unlike hiking which you can do by tossing some water bottles and a few sandwiches in your kids school backpack, Kayaking requires the purchase of a boat ($500-$1500), a PFD ($50-$150) and a paddle ($50-$100) at the minimum!

Overview

Kayaking is NOT a cheap sport. Unlike hiking which you can do by tossing some water bottles and a few sandwiches in your kids school backpack, Kayaking requires the purchase of a boat ($500-$1500), a PFD ($50-$150) and a paddle ($50-$100) at the minimum! So it’ll cost you between $600 and $2k just to start the sport.

Then by the time you toss in all that extra gear you should have like dry-bags, paddle leashes, tow-lines and sop on, your support gear may very well equal the initial investment.

BUT, there is hope!

For we-who-are-poor, but enjoy the sport, this book tells you how to make inexpensive paddling gear from junk you’d normally throw away! Filled with almost a hundred ideas for kayak and camping gear covering 68 chapters and illustrated with 31 drawings and designs plus 274 photos, this book will aid the do-it-yourselfer to make kayak and camping gear that is, in many places, better than what you can purchase.

So dif out your tool-box, dust off your apron, wander through the alleys and be ready to brag about what kind of camping and kayaking gear you have made!

Meet the Author

Descended from Irish Nobles and a Barbary Coast Pirate, my interests are, by breeding, strange.After 28 years as a USAF Civil Engineer building hospitals and schools around the world, I find that knowing how to say "Please" and "Thank you" in the native language and being polite to be the best PR a person can have.I've been writing since the 1970's though only recently seeking a mass market for my material. I am famous in my own circles so Smashwords is an experiment in expanding myself.I am a single father who enjoys Martial Arts, Kayaking, Geocaching, Astronomy, reading, building things, inventing, brewing Mead, traveling and dressing up. I am also a Third Degree Gardnerian High Priest (Witch) of Desert Henge Coven in Tucson.Likes include a good pizza and Godiva Chocolate.Anything else I should include? Let me know.

    Crafty guy for the straight male homophobe

    While the author is definately a smart, crafty guy with great ideas for gear he has a major chauvanistic and homophobic sense of humor. Its like an obsession throughout the book. Being a female reader, I found his constant references to women as sex objects, getting laid, lesbians, and gay men as a complete turnoff. Perhaps he needs to seek counseling and try again.
