Making a Greenland (GP) take-apart paddle

Post by Yostwerks »

Below are links to making a one piece Greenland style paddle and it's take-apart version. Take the time necessary to give them a proper trial, and you may never go back to your 'Euro".

Now that I am home and retired, I am getting tempted to make a paddle. Your instructions are nudging me. :lol:

I have a 2-piece Greenland paddle made by Eric Schade of Shearwater Boats. Since I have made the switch, my standard Bending Branches paddle feels funny. My Pouch feels faster with the Greenland, though I have no data to back up that claim.

I sent an email to Schade, a while back, and never received a reply. Is he bad with email?
